National Coach Development Framework

Established in 2009, the Squash New Zealand Coach Development Framework was designed to enthuse, connect and empower coaches to take part in numerous formal and informal development opportunities afforded to them. By providing the best possible education opportunities to current and aspirant squash coaches, the Framework allows coaches to develop themselves to the highest standard by attaining the necessary skills and support to work with their chosen coaching communities.

Coaches Code of Ethics  

Coaches are required to sign the Squash NZ Coaches Code of Ethics (PDF) at the completion of each module.

This code covers a variety of situations in the coaching environment under seven separate headings:

  • Respecting the rights, dignity and worth of every individual athlete as a human being
  • Maintaining high standards of integrity
  • Be a positive role model for your sport and athletes and act in way that projects a positive image for coaching
  • Professional Responsibilities
  • Make a commitment to provide a quality service to your athletes
  • Provide a safe training environment for training and competition
  • Protect your athletes from any form of personal abuse

Squash New Zealand reserves the right to remove any qualifications gained on the framework should these standards be proven to have been broken.

The pre-existing Squash Leaders, Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications will be recognised in New Zealand until 31/12/2019. The recognition of prior learning in other sporting environments will also be taken into account.
