Take your team to the next grand final by learning the skills and knowledge essential for coaching and officiating!  This elective is focused on providing students with knowledge and skills relevant to sports coaching and sports trainers.  Throughout this course they will be given opportunities to gain a coaching/officiating accreditation, learn basic anatomy and physiology, performance analysis, prevention of sports injuries as well as basic first aid and CPR.  Students will also study how to effectively communicate and apply best teaching practice strategies to ensure they are effective “teachers”. This is a relevant elective for students looking to complete VCE Physical Education. The cost of this subject covers all students for several excursions to use community facilities.
