A Message for EQ, ENT and EWA Coaches

Don’t forget State Branch membership has an impact on EA Coach registration status. At the beginning of the calendar year, this impacts coaches in QLD, NT and WA.

In order to remain a current, registered EA coach, membership with a State Branch/Territory must be up to date. If you are a coach who may need to renew your State/Territory Branch membership, you can log in to MyEA to complete your registration or contact your State/Territory Branch for assistance.

As an athlete, working with a current registered Equestrian Australia (EA) accredited coach, you are provided with the assurance that your coach:

  • is up-to-date with coaching trends
  • has completed education relating to equestrian within the previous 12months
  • is insured
  • is qualified in first aid
  • is aware of ASADA rules and guidelines and
  • has completed a state-based working with children check. 

How do you know this?

In June of each year, when annual Coach Registration is due, EA Coaches send to the National Office:

  • EA Coach Updating Summary – including records of attendance at a Compulsory Update Clinic
  • A copy of their current First Aid Certificate
  • A copy of their current Working with Children Check (depending on local state requirements)
  • A copy of their ASADA Level 1 Anti-Doping Certificate (this does not expire)
  • A copy of a current Certificate of Insurance or pay for included EA Insurance

Coaches are required to progressively fulfil approved updating requirements to keep their coaching knowledge and skills up to date. A condition of maintaining accreditation is compulsory attendance at a Coach Update Clinic once every two years (from 2020). At a minimum the Compulsory Coach Update Clinic covers the following topics:

  • Review insurance coverage
  • Review risk management procedures
  • Any new developments or Policy & Procedures
  • Any developments/changes at Sport Australia
  • Any new legislation that may be relevant (such as Working with Children Check/ASADA etc)
