Coaching is a great way of being involved in the game you love. There are a number of coaching opportunities with Ariels VCNA including: NetSetGo, Club teams, independent teams and Ariels VCNA Representative Teams.

Ariels VCNA highly recommends that all community coaches hold at least a Foundation Coach accreditation. Holding Foundation Coaching accreditation is mandatory for our Ariels VCNA Junior Coaching Program. To coach at Representative Level at a minimum coaches need to hold Development Coaching accreditation.
