Australia’s first WSF level 2 coaching course is also being held on the Gold Coast from 18-21 September with the Conference immediately following on from it. This WSF Level 2 course will be presented by International WSF Coach Tutors and provides a great opportunity for anyone wishing to upgrade their coaching qualifications or to stay up to date with the way coaching is moving forward in Australia and around the world.

Both the Conference and Level 2 course will include presentations and on court sessions which will be held at the brand new Carrara Squash Centre which is a legacy of the GC2018 Commonwealth Games.
