Coach Education / Accreditation Update

While all NRL Game Development programs and courses are now postponed and new timelines and dates will need to be created for any future commencement of activity, expired and unaccredited coaches will still have the opportunity to complete the free online accreditation for the new Community Coaching Courses. The current postponement of competitions will allow coaches to complete modules and ensure that when competitions do recommence, they are covered by insurance and able to starting coach again immediately.
