If you are eligible for promotion please forward your application form to the EA Office prior to 27th October 2010.

Coach Registration Renewals
Registration renewal forms are coming in thick and fast!!!
Whilst there is a “grace” period to allow the submission and processing of forms, the database doesn’t understand such things, and as of 30 September coaches cease to show on the Coach Search lists until their renewal is processed.
Please be patient to allow this process. There are about 1500 of you and one of me!!!
Please click here to go to the registration and insurance information and forms.
There have been some Important Changes to Coach Registration and Insurance for the 2010 -2011 period, so please ensure you read them following carefully.
CE/SSTA Workshop -1 - 3 December 2010
ENSW are hosting a CE/SSTA workshop.
Those interested in becoming a CE/SSTA will be required to attend all three days.
Updating CE/SSTAs will be required to attend 2 days - one of which must be day 3.
A big THANKYOU to all those members who completed the recent survey for Coaches and Officials. The results are being analysed and the report written
at the moment. A summary of those results will be made available in the near future. The encouraging thing is that the total sample of 430 represented about 25% and 14% of coaches and officials respectively, a good response rate. The results should also be both accurate and meaningful as the proportion of responses from each state closely reflects the actual distribution of coaches and officials on the database.
Most importantly, the winners of the prizes have been drawn and are listed below – CONGRATULATIONS!!
These people will be contacted shortly to arrange how to collect their prize.
Thank you to our generous sponsors Horseland and Dr Andrew McLean & Peter McGreevy
