CAQ relies on a network of accredited Coaches to introduce new players to the mallet sports and aid development of skills and tactics in chosen sports.
Accreditation against a set of standards is essential so that players receive the benefit of the most up to date support, presented in accordance with most recent and best practice.
Coaches receive accreditation, initially for a period of four years and are required to update their knowledge and skills within that period in order to retain recertification. Coaches are also required to be actively involved and to record their coaching activity.
