Level 1 Coaching Course

The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) offers a range of courses to coaches throughout Western Australia to ensure 100% of coach accreditation requirements are met. The courses are easily accessible as they are delivered across the state through a variety of delivery methods. The courses are delivered by our District and Regional Development Staff, with the assistance of WAFL Coaches and experienced grass roots coaches.

Level 1 Coaching Courses

It is a minimum requirement that all coaches are accredited as a Level 1 Coach at the appropriate level.  All coaches who do not have a current accreditation or have an accreditation that expired more than 24 months ago must attend an appropriate Level 1 course.  The four levels are as follows;

·        Auskick (PP – Year 2)

·        Junior (Year 3 – Year 6)

·        Youth (Year 7 – Year 12)

·        Senior (Colts, Reserves and League)

All courses are competency based course whereby the coach must prove they are capable of conducting and communicating the basics of the game to players of different ages.

Level 1 Courses are 1 day in length with some online components required as a pre-requisite. The courses cost $165 and include;
