Teammate Benefits

Coaching and Refereeing Qualifications

All students who join one of our Sporting Teammate classes will complete coaching and / or refereeing qualifications specific to their Teammate. These coaching qualifications allow our students  to deliver primary school sporting clinics, and can also be used outside of school! Some Teammates also provide additional or advanced qualifications later in your study.

Our relationships with our Teammates mean that our students have lots of opportunities to be involved in Teammate programs and events.

These can include:

  • Work alongside your Teammate by volunteering at matches, competitions and tournaments
  • Head out into the community to help out at Teammate events
  • Help your Teammate to deliver community and holiday programs
  • Spend one day a week delivering sport programs, including multicultural and all-abilities activities
  • Opportunities to coach and officiate competitions at schools, tournaments and community events
  • Some Teammates also offer competitive work placement opportunities to our students

In addition to coaching qualifications, our partnerships with AFL NSW/ACT and the Sydney Swans mean students have opportunities to be involved in a range of AFL programs and events, including:

  • Match day volunteering opportunities with the Sydney Swans
  • Community engagement volunteering opportunities with the Sydney Swans (family days, fan development, state tournaments and other community events)
  • Delivering community and holiday programs on behalf of AFL NSW/ACT
  • Delivering coaching clinics on behalf of AFL NSW/ACT via Auskick, primary schools, multicultural and all abilities activities

We are proud to partner with AFL NSW/ACT and the Sydney Swans. Our AFL partners make it possible for our students to have unparalleled opportunities to develop and participate in the sports industry while completing their HSC. Their industry-leading programs increase sports participation and engagement across NSW, leading to great outcomes for our students and the wider community.

“I was able to volunteer with AFL NSW/ACT and gain experience at a number of events including the Paul Kelly Cup. What I enjoyed most was working with the AFL NSW/ACT staff, who were extremely welcoming and helpful, making me feel comfortable and confident throughout the day.

At the event, I also was given the opportunity to do some talent scouting as part of the AFL NSW/ACT Future Starts program. It gave me a sense of pride seeing the kids’ faces light up when I gave them the invitation and really showed me how rewarding a job like this could be.”
