Following a comprehensive review of the SLSA Surf Sports Coaching Framework, SLSA has redesigned the way coaches are recruited, trained, supported and retained.

The result is a contemporary, flexible, interactive and purpose-build coach development framework, designed to ensure we are developing great coaches in all coaching environments and in all Surf Sport disciplines.

The new SLSA Coaching Framework is fundamentally taking over what was formally known as the Junior Coaching, Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 courses.

The major change to the coaching framework is that it is now discipline specific. SLSA Surf Sports Coach training sits under the umbrella of the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS), which covers over 80 different sports throughout Australia and is managed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC). SLSA has a 5-tiered Coaching Pathway which is outline in Figure below.

Note: The Age Manager qualification is not part of the National Coach Accreditation Scheme.
