Coaching at South West Sydney Academy of Sport

Coach and Support staff form the volunteer backbone of the South West Sydney Academy of Sport in providing the on-field, technical coaching of the Academy's sporting programs.

On average, close to 50 coach and support staff take up the opportunity to form a part of the Academy's Coach program each year. 

The greater majority of Academy coaches are sourced from within the Academy's catchment area, with the bulk of coaches spending multiple years within the program.

As with our Academy athletes, our coaches are already active participants within their own sporting communities; with many taking up multiple roles within their Club and Association organisations.

Our coaches have a passion for the development of junior athletes within the South West Sydney community.

The ongoing support and development of our coaches is made possible by investment in the QUBE Coach Development program. It is this investment into the Academy's coaching staff that allows our athletes to achieve their sporting potential in their chosen arena, whilst promoting a culture of youth, sport and excellence within our community.

Academy coach and support staff attend and often take a lead in facilitating the Academy Sport Program Framework, by conducting practical training sessions, as well as leading in  Sports Science testing and strength and conditioning training.

Our coach and support staff are also encouraged to continue their professional development through opportunities to undertake further training. Such as a higher-level General Principles of Coaching, Sports Trainer accreditation, Advanced Sports Taping and engage in multi-sports sessions, with a view to gaining an understanding in what works well across a number of sports. And coach development opportunities as they become available.  

Our Coach and Support Staff are additionally supported by a Coach Technical and Advisory Group (CTAG), who are available to provide direct technical and tactical advice and mentoring to our coach and support staff, as well as continue to observe current State, National and International  coaching trends, and provide that feedback to the Academy for inclusion throughout the ongoing Coach Development process. Members of the CTAG are highly credentialed and experienced coaching staff within their own right, with significant experience at State, National, and International levels. 

Community Coach and Support staff who are interested in becoming a part of the coach development culture of the South West Sydney Academy of Sport, are invited to check out the Coach Education page or contact the Academy Office with an expression of interest.
