Updating Accreditation


Updating involves coaches completing various tasks in a four year period following successful competition of an accredited course – Foundation, Development, Intermediate, Advanced and High Performance. It is a requirement that all coaches who become accredited must continue to update their knowledge to maintain their accreditation.

Why Update? Updating provides an opportunity for coaches to:

  • Keep up with the latest information on developments within netball
  • Receive the latest general and specific safety information for netball
  • Have the most up to date techniques and coaching methods in Australia

How To Update? When a coach receives an accreditation after completing an accredited netball course the “update clock” starts. Coaches have four years in which to complete their updating requirements. By attending updating activities, a coach is able to earn points towards completing the updating requirements associated with her/his current level of accreditation.

  • A copy of Completed Log Book – provide registration number if applicable
