All Coach Check registered sports and martial arts coaches meet the following important requirements.


    Protecting the public, especially our kids is paramount at Coach Check. All coaches must submit the necessary background check required by law in their Country, State or Jurisdiction. The check must include suitability to work with children.


    Applicants must demonstrate that they have undertaken training courses within or external to their sporting organization that are deemed "relevant" to their sporting discipline. Courses may include but are not limited to nationally recognized courses, or Coach Check can recommend short courses that will help applicants to achieve this requirement.


    Applicants must provide evidence that they have the knowledge and skills within their industry deemed sufficient to be able to coach others. Evidence can organizational certificates, awards and testimonials. A personal biography outlining experience is also used to validate this requirement.

"There is nothing more daunting than sending your kids into a new club; not knowing who will be coaching your children. I want to know as a parent that my children are in safe hands. Coach check runs a thorough check to ensure your children are being trained by qualified instructors, in a safe environment with an additional layer of protection as all instructors are police checked. I recommend and encourage all parents to make sure they coach check their coaches."

Shannyn Stevens, Concerned parent

"Coach Check is the most critical step in selecting the right coach or instructor for your child. Finally, there is a system that is able to verify the credentials of coaches as “fit and proper” to teach others in martial arts. Parents and the general public can rest assured that their coaches have ticked all the right boxes when it comes to police checks, qualifications and experience. "

Tino Ceberano, 9th Dan Goju Karate and Senior Pioneer of Karate in Australia

"The most important consideration for any parent is safety of your child! Knowing that my child is enrolled in a martial arts program where all coaches are required to undergo Coach Check registration is reassuring to say the least. I am truly grateful for this initiative and urge all parents to ensure their children’s coaches have undergone the “Coach Check” registration process."

Sasha and Elisabeth Bursac, Concerned parents

"As an MMA and BJJ coach it is important for me to present my credentials in a professional manner. Coach Check is an impartial coach verification process that requires particular credentials before you can be registered. Coach Check helped me to get my portfolio in order guiding me to be the best I can be. Coach Check is now an integral part of my personal marketing strategy."
