Are you open to new ideas?  Are you prepared to commit time and effort to developing your coaching practice?  Are you coaching in a club or with a team, leading regular training sessions and coaching the same squad  through a competitive cycle?  Are you looking to challenge yourself to be the best coach you can be?  Qualifications are an important part of coach development and for some, taking the Level 3 qualification is a great next step in your coaching journey.

The NS Level 3 runs over three weekends, with a series of take home tasks for completion.  Once all tasks have been completed, an independent coaching assessment will be undertaken.

 

In February 2018, we concluded the first ever NS Level 3 Course, and a further course will become available in 2019.

If you would like to learn more about the NS Level 3 course, please contact Rebecca Hope via educationdevelopment@netballscotland.com
