LAPS (Little Athletics Program for Schools) Coach

We are seeking accredited coaches who are interested in coaching in schools as part of the Little Athletics Program for Schools. LAPS coaching involves conducting practical athletics sessions for classes of school children during school hours. Most LAPS sessions are conducted at primary schools.

A typical LAPS coaching session will last between 30-60 minutes and involve a class of up to thirty students. Multiple sessions may be conducted at a school throughout a day. One event is usually coached per session.

An aspiring LAPS coach can apply to work within the program by completing LAPS Coach Criteria form, accessed here. Additional training and development will be offered according to the needs of each individual coach.
