Athletics is supported by a range of volunteer, club and high-performance coaches across the state. To enable the continued development of athletics in WA, more coaches will be needed. The opportunity to coach Athletics will provide you with a broad range of opportunities from grassroots to the Olympics and Paralympics.

Athletics West offers a range of educational opportunities as part of the Athletics Australia Coach Accreditation Framework. The Framework is the endorsed coach education program for athletics coaches. Coach education programs deliver knowledge, skills and experience to equip coaches with the understanding of what to coach and how to coach. Those who complete an accredited coaching program will become an Accredited Athletics Coach (AAC) at that level of accreditation and can register with Athletics Australia as a coach and therefore be insured for their coaching practice.
