Why be a coaching provider?

Is your organisation:

  • Wanting to increase children’s participation in sport?
  • Nurturing children’s lifelong love of sport?
  • Wanting to connect children with community sport?

Then maybe you should become a coaching provider for the Sporting Schools program.

Coaching providers are organisations that provide coaching services on behalf of a national sporting organisation (NSO) within the Sporting Schools program. Coaching providers generally manage booking requests made by schools and have a workforce of various size and reach. Their coach workforce must meet the coach requirements for each nominated sport.
