Coaching Competency

As a coach, it is always important to remember that at all times you are a role model and should act accordingly to portray the ethical and behavioural conduct expected of you. Coaches are encouraged to work enthusiastically at all times with players, and above all ensure their assessed and approved competency must never be in question.

This competency is based on:

  • Knowledge / Understanding of the game
  • Skill
  • Coaching Performance

Accredited coaches must also act in accordance with the Australian Sports Commission’s (ASC) Code of Ethics and the Australian Rugby League’s (ARL) Code of Conduct/Behaviour and the Legal and Legislative Responsibilities with apply to a coach.

Rugby League has, for the first time, brought together all sections of the game in a Kids to Kangaroos National Development plan, which will coordinate the sport’s multi-million dollar investment in junior participation and development.
