How does the programme connect with the New Zealand Curriculum?

Growing Coaches does not have to be connected to the New Zealand Curriculum for delivery within a school. However if schools wish to assess students for NCEA achievement standards, these can be done at level 1, 2 and 3 and assessment examples can be found on the Sport New Zealand website.

Achievement standards that closely match the Growing Coaches programme include:

AS 90966 (1.5) Setting the Scene
AS 90966 (1.5) Using interpersonal skills to coach an athlete or team
AS 90967 (1.6) Can we improve performance
AS 90969 (1.8) Coaching encourages participation
AS 91328 (2.2) Using Knowledge to improve 
AS 91332 (2.6) Coaching a team
