Becoming a PFA Accredited Coach

PFA has created a development pathway for coaches in the sport of petanque in Australia.  The pathway will be supported by a series of development opportunities including workshops, tools and mentoring programs.

The purpose of this initiative is to ensure that the sport at every level meets the Australian Sports Commission's Sports Governance Principles and the standards set by FIPJP and CIEP.

PFA defines coaches as follows:

  • Level 1: Club Coach

  • Level 2: State Coach

  • Level 3: National Coach

  • Level 4: Confederation Coach

  • Level 5: International Coach

For opportunities to qualify as a PFA Coach, contact your club, State Director of Coaching or the National Director of Coaching.
