Take your first step into basic athletics skills coaching.

All practical course - no exams! 
No previous experience necessary! 

If you want to learn more about athletics for kids, the ITCC is for you!  

The ITCC is designed to help participants become better placed to assist children to perform basic athletic skills.  The course is great for parents, school teachers and volunteers who want to know a little more about the skills of the sport so that they may help to coach children of Primary school age, assist at Little Athletics Centres or prepare students for a school athletics carnival.  Participants will be shown skills,drills,games and activities relevant to the target age group.  

The ITCC is a non accredited practical coaching course designed for Little Athletics and conducted on behalf of Little Athletics Australia-LAA.

-Better understand how to organise a group safely

1 Day course -6.5 hours duration - approx. 8.45amto 3.20pm

This year the cost remains at  $65 although Mentone LAC club volunteers interested in the course maybe reimbursed this fee (contact us for more info). The participants will receive an overview of the course notes in an Interactive PDF, along with other additional handouts.

The ITCC is the only coaching course designed for Little Athletics that teaches the basic skills required for all events.  This is a must do course if you wish to assist athletes at your Centre with these skills.

For those older athletes that have completed the On Track workshop, new parents or existing committee members who are looking to provide extra assistance at your Centre, the ITCC will assist.
