The PFA's National Director of Coaching, Patrick Dufresne, is now an Internationally Qualified Coach Level 3. He is one of only 5 Petanque Coaches qualified to that level outside of France.
In order to achieve this qualification Patrick had to attend a training course and pass the required exam in France. Prior to Patrick achieving this Qualification, PFA has, on 4 previous occasions, had to bring international level coaches from overseas to allow Australian coaches to qualify at a national level.
Patrick's Certificate arrived recently . Congratulations patrick.
