The Female Coaching Scholarship awarded by Swimming Australia aims to provide opportunities for women to upskill and undergo professional development, helping to increase the quality and number of accredited female coaches in Australia.
The Female Coaching Scholarship will provide successful candidates with assistance towards the costs of enrolment in the Advanced (previously Silver) or Performance (previously Gold) Coaching Courses. Costs which will be accepted for subsidy include:
- Travel and Accommodation: Swimming Australia will contribute to the cost of travel and accommodation towards attendance at face to face workshops or mentoring to achieve supervised practice requirements as part of the coach education process.
- Accreditation: Swimming Australia will contribute towards the cost of enrolment for an Advanced or Performance coaching course. Application details will be posted here when the next round of the Female Coaching Scholarship is open.
