Tri NZ Coaching Framework Overview
Our coach development structure ensures minimum operating standards for Tri NZ accredited coaches. This will makes sure that participants in the sport of triathlon are coached safely and in a manner that promotes athlete wellbeing. It is a requirement of Tri NZ club affiliation that only Tri NZ accredited coaches are able to coach, train or instruct athletes at that club.
Prior to 2018, the development framework consisted of four levels, Tri NZ Coaching Level 0, 1, 2, and 3 that represented a coach’s progress along the development pathway. Coaches that have achieved these levels prior to the changes are still able to promote themselves at their level of achievement but are required to complete the annual coaching registration before doing so.
