Collingwood is privileged to have a number of qualified and experienced volunteer and paid coaches. Our coaches are accredited at various coaching levels through Athletics Australia and must hold a Working With Children Check and have completed their Play By The Rules accreditation. Further information on our coaching services can be found here.
Officials / Parent helpers are very important to the effective functioning of our weekly competition. There are a large number of roles that need to be filled each week. Some require technical knowledge and experience, while others are basic and require only a limited understanding of athletics.
We encourage our parent group to get involved, be it in coaching or especially officiating. If you are interested please contact any member of the Committee. The Centre will reimburse parents for registration fees to any of the following courses:
