General principles and presenter manuals along with all disciplines Level 3 and 4 manual.

HPM will purchase their manuals out of their ACA budget.

VCA have agreed once again to cover the cost for Level 1 and 2 manuals for its coaches in Victoria.

Pre-requisites

An application form for each mallet sport code (AC, GC, Gateball, Ricochet) can be found within the Coaching Training flyer.

Please complete the application form and send to coachingnull@nullcroquetvic.asn.au including a copy of your WWCC certificate.

All existing coaches should already be using their logbook to keep an up-to-date record of their coaching activities. The new National Coaching Program requires all coaches to log their coaching hours, in order to meet SportAus requirements for record-keeping.

Working With Children Check

Please note: A valid Working With Children Check (WWCC) is now an ACA prerequisite for attendance at all coach training.

Coaches, even non-certified members who are coaching U18s require WWCC, as it is classed as child-related work, whether in a paid or voluntary capacity.

Anyone who is in any way imparting knowledge is deemed to be working with children.

Clubs that run programs for school groups, youth groups etc, will require all members who coach the youth to have WWCC; this includes school groups accompanied by Dept. of Education members/employees who previously supervised club members' contact.
