The Introduction to Coaching Course (ITCC) is designed to help participants become better placed to assist children to perform basic athletics skills. The ITCC is a practical coaching course designed for Little Athletics and conducted on behalf of Little Athletics Australia. It covers how to teach basic working models for each event on the Little Athletics program. Participants will be shown event-specific drills, games and activities relevant to the target age group. This course is particularly suitable for parents, school teachers, those looking to assist at Little Athletics Centres and prepare students for school athletics carnivals. 


The ITCC course will be held following the Level 1 Community Athletics Coaching course Sunday, June 17, 2018. This is an excellent opportunity to further develop your practical knowledge of Athletics event groups.
