Coach Accreditation (Kyorugi)

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. 

A formal coaching certification gives parents and athletes a greater sense of confidence, knowing their coach has undergone a certain level of education and training to enhance the coaching relationship. To coach at any Australian Taekwondo sanctioned event, you must hold a valid coach accreditation to access the competition floor. Accreditation can be gained online by completing our coaching courses. 

Australian Taekwondo coaching course provides a pathway for experienced and new coaches to attain accreditation applicable to the different areas of coaching required for competitive Taekwondo.
