Coach development opportunities

Netball Central Zone (NCZ) are pleased to offer online and in-person development opportunities.  
These are fantastic opportunities to learn and connect with others.

In addition to online offerings, on occasion there is the chance for coaches to come together to attend practical workshops to learn by seeing/doing/discussing.  By attending, you get the chance to share and absorb knowledge from the room while networking.

Prior coach or manager experience is not necessary. 
Coaches, managers and umpires from all levels and sport codes welcome.
Attendees are welcome to pick and choose topics of interest to suit your learning needs.

Course names may alter slightly for advertising purposes however these remain NNZ accredited courses for those hoping to complete modules along the NNZ Coaching Framework.  Anyone progressing towards Community Coach Award level 1 (CCA1) or level 2 (CCA2) will be credited with the appropriate module once attended.
