Sport Australia Coach Development Conference

How we develop coaches to meet the future needs of our communities

We will be collectively exploring how we develop the coaches our Australian communities and participants need in the future: Focusing on understanding self, impact on others and how this can shape quality coaching and wellbeing

Sport Australia will be bringing together national and international experts and diverse perspectives to consider how our coaches are best developed to deliver outcomes for our communities in the future. To do that we will explore; what coaches need to know, what coaches need to be able to do; and the strategies and frameworks that will support coaches to deliver the future outcomes and needs of our diverse participants and communities.

Keynote speakers at the conference will include:

Dr. Steven Rynne – Senior Lecturer and Program Convenor for Sports Coaching with the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences and is an affiliate appointment with the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at The University of Queensland, Australia.

Tracey Menzies – Australian swimming coach, most known for coaching five-time Olympic champion Ian Thorpe, Australia’s most successful Olympian, from late 2002 until his retirement in 2006.

More speakers to be announced closer to the event.

The conference will also provide an opportunity to connect with the Inaugural Industry Advisory Group – Community Coaching and hear some initial thinking emerging from their first meeting.
This conference is a free event for state and national sporting organisation personnel with a key responsibility for developing coaches.

Attendees also can join the National Sports Convention on Day 1, (Wednesday 25th July). To access the Association Member discounted rate use the code GO1NSC when you register here
