This qualification is the entry-level qualification for professional sports coaches. The role of sport in South Africa continues to grow in social importance. If sport is to become truly accessible for all South Africans, it is essential that coaches receive the best possible education and training through all the levels to enable all citizens to participate in sport. This qualification focuses on the technical and tactical skills requirements associated with the coaching of athletes for participation in competitions in particular, and differentiates itself from sport science, which focuses on the support system for the athlete and coach to improve the performance of the athlete and strive towards excellence.
