Practical Coaching Activity Log Sheets
For the completion of the practical requirements of a coaching accreditation, log sheets to record your practical coaching activity have been developed.
Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)
All coaches must satisfy the competencies of each particular level of accreditation. However, some practising coaches may be able to satisfy some or all competencies required for a particular NCAS accreditation as a coach without having to attend a formal course or complete the prescribed officiating practice post-course. Individuals who wish to apply for RPL are welcome to do so. Please complete the relevant application form and submit it to Volleyball Australia, along with relevant evidence and a payment of $20 to cover RPL assessment. There are three outcomes of an application: no RPL, partial RPL or full RPL.
Coach's Code of Ethics
VA endorses the Australian Sports Commission's Code of Ethics for Coaches. All coaches wishing to be accredited must have read this code, agree to abide by this code and conduct themselves in accordance with this code when coaching volleyball and then complete and submit the Contract of Acceptance as a formal agreement to abide by the Code of Ethics. Coaches who are deemed to break this Code can have their accreditation withdrawn.
All coach accreditations are valid for four years, at which time coaches must demonstrate they have been actively coaching over the four years of their accreditation to have their accreditation renewed. More details can be found here.
