Coach education and training

Coaching and leadership are the cornerstone of sport. They are the key to success and achieving new levels of skill, whether at local club level or world championships.

Coaching is a vital part of the development of any athlete, and the Commission is committed to supporting and developing New Zealand's coaches at national, regional and local level.

The Hillary Commission helps provide coaching courses at the local and regional level. For more information download the Coach Education leaflet or email

The Hillary Commission provides a generic Coach Accreditation Programme under the brand name "Coaching New Zealand".

The number of coaches being trained is growing - for a progress report, check out our annual report.

Most clubs find it hard to attract and keep good coaches. This is a major issue for sport in New Zealand, and the Hillary Commission will continue to provide funds and training opportunities to strengthen sport coaching at all levels.
