Volleyball New Zealand Coach Development Programme

Volleyball New Zealand (VNZ) is in the late stages of redefining the NEW Coach Development Programme (VNZCDP) with appropriate coach education curriculum, courses and accreditations. The roll out of the full coaching framework will take place over a three year period starting this year.



The VNZ Coach Development Programme is based on the four areas of our coaching community - ENGAGE, DEVELOP, GROW and EXCEL. We think it gives a clear pathway for coaches to follow. We have also endeavoured to align our programme with the Sport New Zealand coach, athlete and participant pathways.

Stage one of our programme covering 2017-18 will focus on our Local Coach Qualification. This is designed to be our engagement level for new coaches, targeting teachers, parents, junior and senior college students and returning coaches.

The Local Qualification is suitable for beginner coaches (college students, parents and Teachers) or coaches wishing to refresh their knowledge of the volleyball fundamentals. Participants should feel comfortable coaching a KiwiVolley (Years 3-8) team or a Junior (Years 9 & 10) Secondary School side.

We will have further information and timelines around the Regional Coach Qualification but endeavour to have this ready to roll out midway through this year. 2018-19 will focus on the National and Performance Coach Qualifications.
