Coach & Referee Accreditation

Following an extensive review during 2016/17, it was identified that;

  1. The current WPA coach and referee course material was out-of-date
  2. There were no mechanisms in place for re-accreditation or professional development of existing coaches and officials; and
  3. There is a need within the sport to grow the number of quality trained coaches and officials to assist in future player development and club growth.

Via the new WPA Education Framework, Curriculum and online learning platform, The LearningPool, WPA is implementing changes to address these three key areas.

Transition for current accreditations and future RPL

The changes to the water polo education framework means that there is an opportunity for up-skilling and training for everyone, accessible anywhere/anytime.

A 12-month transition period from September 2017 to September 2018 will be in put in place to give everyone time to become familiar and accredited within the new system and accreditation levels.
