Coaching Development Program

Centre for Coaching

The TIS has commenced a Centre for Coaching Project. The Project objective is to develop, implement and embed a sustainable Centre for Coaching in TIS operations – a centre which all sports in Tasmania look to as an opportunity to develop and/or enhance their coaches.

The Project has three phases, with an expected timeframe of three years. Initial phases of the Project; research, consultation, subsequent gap analysis and development of ‘pilots’, is well under way. The first of the pilots focuses on targeted and individualised coach development.

The Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship (WCS)

The Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship (WCS) is a partnership between Womensport & Recreation Tasmania (WSRT) and the Tasmanian Institute of Sport (TIS). The WCS’ purpose is to provide women with quality coach learning and development opportunities to support their progression along the coach development pathway. Ultimately, the goal is to see more women coaching sport in Tasmania.

The WCS is targeted toward women who might not otherwise have access to high quality coach development and learning - through financial constraints or who are from rural/remote communities.

Who is eligible?

The successful candidate must meet the following criteria to be considered for the scholarship:

  • Women, 18 years or over.
  • Australian citizen or have permanent resident status.

The timing of the scholarship period is flexible and dependent on the individual, the program activities and the sport.


The Program intends to award two scholarships to the value of $5,000 each.
