Coaching Courses: Do I need to have a Level 1 to do Level 2

Yes.

The coaching scheme is a pathway that runs from Foundation to Level 2. People who have played Ultimate for six months or more can start at Level 1 and don't need to do a Foundation course.

For more information on the coaching pathway please view the Coaching Structure here.

Why?

Creating a safe envrioment is central to any good coaching practice. As a govening body we have a duty of care to ensure that all Ulltimate coaches have the knowledge and skills to ensure that safety comes first when coaching. 

Additioanlly, coaching is a vast and deep subject. Some players may consider their playing and leadership experience as a reason to skip a step in the coaching pathway. We feel that even the most experienced players will find value in learning about coaching with our coach educators on our coaching pathway.
