Coaches and officials have a major influence in the experience of everyone involved in sport and play a vital role in the engagement and retention of participants.  

Every sport in Australia needs a system for developing sufficient numbers of quality coaches and officials to meet the needs of their participants now and into the future.  

National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) are responsible for the design and implementation of their coaching and officiating frameworks.  Coaches and officials interested in what training and support their sport provides should go to the website of the relevant NSO.  

The toolkit on this website is designed to assist NSOs to develop coaching and officiating frameworks.  The ASC also conducts regular workshops with a range of NSOs that have been through the steps, providing the opportunity to enhance the final product through understanding the experiences of others.  

The toolkit is part of a range of resources on this site that NSOs are free to use to supplement their frameworks.
