Coaches who are applying for re-accreditation need to fill out the form available from the following address and send to BQ.
STEPS TO REACCREDITATION AS INTRODUCTORY OR CLUB COACH
1. Contact the Brisbane District Coaching Committee (BDCC) on firstname.lastname@example.org 6 months before reaccreditation is due.
2. Check that you have met the re-accreditation requirements.
A Regular practical coaching component e.g. practical coaching - Introductory 15 hours per year, Club 50 hours per year – all coaches should be actively practising their craft. They are required to keep a log of regular coaching, recommended to be 60 hours/4 years - for Introductory Coaches and 200 hours/4 years - for Club Coaches. The log can be in the form of a notebook, excel spreadsheet or any other means of demonstrating 60 hours of practical coaching. This must be available at time of re-accreditation and shown to the coach’s nominated club (see point two).
B Current and competent letter’ from their nominated club – All coaches are required to have their club president/secretary verify their competency and hours of active coaching. In signing this letter, the club is endorsing that:
a) the re-accreditation candidate has been actively coaching (and they have seen the log detailing the hours); and
b) the club is satisfied with the performance of the coach and is happy for that coach to continue. (If the club does not value the services of the coach, they are free to decline signing the ‘current and competent letter’)
C View online videos on Bowls Australia website –
BA has designed/sourced several short videos which will be updated from time to time in accordance with relevant industry standards and legislation changes. While it is impossible to ‘force’ a coach to view videos (the same as it is impossible to force a coach to listen to the presenter during a course), we will keep the videos interesting, valuable and relevant to current coaching needs.
Each participant will be able to view coaching videos available online via the STA/BA websites. A small library of these DVD’s will be provided to each STA for those candidates that are unable to view video’s online. They will (as part of their re-accreditation process) be asked to tick the appropriate box on the re-accreditation form to show they have viewed and understood the videos. We will have a range of coaching videos online which will jointly form the personal development component of re-accreditation.
