 Coaching Accreditation
Anyone interested in gaining a coaching qualification can sign-up for either a Community or a Level 1 coaching qualification.
This is an excellent opportunity for any aspiring coaches or prospective parent helpers who may be interested in coaching or assisting a team in 2017.
These coaching education courses are run concurrently with the Pre-Season Skills Academy so is a great opportunity for new coaches to practice and to complete their practical assessments.
There is a standard $40 fee when prospective coaches register with Hockey Ed to complete the online training, but otherwise GNS will not charge any other fees to complete the practical component or assessment.
Those interested should register and complete the steps as advised on our website at
