Ultimate Australia Coach Accreditation
Ultimate Australia provides formal coach education through accredited UA Coach courses.
Community Coach – Level 1

The Level 1 – Community Coach Course will teach you the skills required to get a beginner group playing and enjoying Ultimate Frisbee. Completion of the course and it’s co-requisite requirements takes approximately 5.5 hours.
Coaches can take this training at any time, and at their own pace, with all training and assessment to attain the Level 1 qualification provided online.
This course is usually valued at $37.99 (inc. GST) but is provided free of charge for the time being.
UV can also deliver in-person coach training for groups based at clubs, schools and organisations. Those interested in hosting the course for their members, students or volunteers to gain Level 1 accreditation should contact us to discuss options.
