Coach Mentor Scheme

The primary purpose of our Coach Mentoring Scheme is to advance the standard of athletics coaching in Victoria.

These members have volunteered as coach-mentors to provide direct support:

  • for all coaches wishing to develop their skills and knowledge;
  • by providing advice and guidance to coaches who wish to refine their coaching practices; and,
  • by promoting athletics coaching ‘best practices’.

Our members participating as coach mentors may be at varying levels of ATFCA accreditation but you can be confident that they all have the experience, enthusiasm and expertise to help you in their areas of specialisation and in the general art and science of effective coaching.
