Coach Pathways

At the forefront of athlete and game development are our Touch Football coaches. From grassroots through to representative levels, our game relies on volunteer coaches who give of their time for various reasons. Ensuring that coaches are adequately supported to undertake their voluntary role is a primary focus of the sport.

Touch Football Australia has a four-tier accreditation system linked to the AIS Development model FTEM, which is supported by Queensland Touch Football and South West Queensland Touch through the provision of Courses – Foundation Coach, Talent Coach and Elite Coach.

As well as providing support and education at Foundation level, the sport provides opportunities for volunteers to pursue representative coaching pathways at Affiliate, Regional, State and National levels.

Coach Accreditation lasts for a period of four years, after which Updating your Accreditation is required.
