Quality coaching is critical to recruiting and retaining participants in Taekwondo. Our coaches assist athletes in their development and help them to reach their full potential. While a coach's role is often varied, it's essential they possess the proper training and accreditation.
This accreditation is required to coach at club, state, and national events sanctioned by Australian Taekwondo and is applicable to all new and renewing coaches.
Valid: 12 months, renewed yearly.
For Coaches between the age of 16-18 years old: the Australian Taekwondo Coaching Accreditation is for the training and instructing of students in class in the club environment.
For Coaches of the age of 18 years or older: the Australian Taekwondo Coaching Accreditation is for the training and instructing of students in class in the club environment and the coaching of students at State and National events. It is also a necessary requirement for coaching on National Teams.
