National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) Review

A review of Equestrian Australia's National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) is to be conducted at the request of the EA National Board.

EA has approached the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) to provide to assist in facilitating the review which will look at all aspects of EA’s NCAS program as well as the coaching landscape of the equine sports industry.

“The review into EA’s NCAS program will assess the current coach education pathways to ensure it complies with industry best practice and is meeting the needs of all stakeholders including the ASC, EA and its state branches as well as the broader equestrian industry.

“The outcomes of the review will be used to shape EA’s NCAS program moving forward so that it offers greater accessibility for individuals to start on the coach education pathway and remain in the program, without compromising coaching standards.

“We have taken on board the feedback of our coaches over the years, both within EA and from other equine groups we already work with, and we knew we needed to act on that feedback. The terms of reference are still to be established as is the panel – but the Board will be looking to implement real outcomes that will benefit the whole sport,” said EA Chairman Dr Warwick Vale.

The terms of reference for the review will be determined once an independent facilitator is appointed and the panel is formed. Equestrian Australia will be providing the terms of reference and review timeline on the EA website once it has been established.
