Parents as Sport Coaches

Parents as Sport Coaches

At NPS, we have appreciated the many parents who have taken on the responsibility of being a sports coach for an NPS school team. 

Recent changes to the Department for Education  Camps and Excursions policy and procedures have placed more stringent requirements on volunteers who are prepared to be a sports coach.

These new initiatives intend to ensure children to move safely and effectively beyond the site setting, to participate in an array of learning experiences offered within the community.

Requirements for Coaching:

All coaches are required to

1) register to be NPS volunteer: Please email Toni Ballard to activate                   

2) To have a current Working with Children Certificate: please email Toni Ballard. 

toni.ballard257@schools.sa.edu.au

3) HTL004 First Aid certificate:   The school will pay the associated costs

 The required course is Provide an Emergency First aid response in an education and care setting. There are several providers. When booking, please ask the provider for an education price and send an invoice to the school, so you are not out of pocket.

Please ask the provider for a school price and to invoice the NPS.
