2010 ANL – Coach’s Wrap

Coach of the Territory Storm, Di Brown, reviews the Territory Storm’s performance in the 2010 ANL season on the Netball NT web page:

The NT had the most challenging and complex training environment and competition calendar. As a ‘team’ we were spread across the country; had the longest distances and time to travel to our games…
I am proud and thrilled to have been part of The Territory Storm… to have observed individuals evolve on and off the court and as a team, the final game against the AIS at Marrara Indoor Stadium typified our journey together – what The Territory Storm represents is heart, soul, and sheer determination.

FREE AASC Community Coach Training Program


The Active After-school Communities (AASC) program is a national initiative that provides primary school-aged children with access to free, structured physical activity programs in the after-school hours timeslot. The program aims to engage traditionally inactive children in sport and other structured physical activities, and through a positive and fun experience, develop a love of sport that inspires them to join a local sporting club. Coaches from the community are needed to help deliver these activities and they attend the Community Coach Training Program prior to getting started.

The Australian Sports Commission’s Active After-School Communities (AASC) Program is conducting a FREE Coaching Course on Wednesday the 15th and Thursday the 16th of December. It is open to students, volunteers, teachers, parents, club coaches, beginner coaches, professional coaches and community members.

How does it work?
To gain your Foundation Coach Accreditation through the AASC program, all you have to do is:

  • Complete a successful appraisal conducted by a AASC staff member (there are 154 AASC Regional Coordinators across the country)
  • Apply for your Foundation Coach Accreditation through your state netball association

Who is it for?
This process is available for anyone who would like to coach in the AASC and also have an interest in gaining coaching accreditation in netball.

What are the benefits?
Going through this process will allow you to gain two qualifications – your netball Foundation Coaching Accreditation and your AASC Community Coach Certificate.
