Guidelines, policies and research

The National Coaching and Officiating Accreditation Schemes (NCAS and NOAS) provide competency based training and a nationally recognised accreditation to coaches and officials working at all levels of sport.

To be part of the NCAS and NOAS, sports must meet certain eligibility requirements, including being recognised by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).

The ASC has design guidelines for sports developing accreditation programs to be part of the NCAS and NOAS.

Sports involved in the NCAS and NOAS must also abide by a number of policies which help to ensure the quality of the program.

A range of research projects into various aspects of coaching and officiating have been conducted.
