Coaching in the WCU. At present people looking for a coach either for themselves or their children have no reliable information to assist them in making their choice. A list of accredited coaches will help players to find someone with relevant experience and provide some protection for young players from unsuitable persons. From a new initiative by the WCU management board, you can now apply to become an accredited WCU coach. Click here for details.
