Upcoming Sports Trainer Courses

SA Sports Medicine Association is gearing up for a busy 2021 with our calendar of events taking shape. I wanted to let you know about our upcoming Accredited Sports Trainer Courses. We have a number of courses scheduled to take place prior to the winter sporting season starting, allowing clubs and associations to have accredited personnel in place prior to the commencement of the season. 

Level 1 Sports Trainers Course

During 2020, SASMA worked hard to restructure the Level 1 Sports Trainers course to allow individuals from across the state to complete their Accreditation. By changing the delivery style of the course, we have increased our reach and accessibility for all individuals, no matter where they are in the state. 

The course in now broken up into 3 stages:

  • An online Emergency Responder Course including assessment component to be completed prior to the Webinar
  • A live Webinar 
  • A three hour face to face component to complete practical assessments

We have a number of assessors across the state who are able to complete these pracitcal assessments. 

Webinars will be running on the following dates:

  • 2 February
  • 22 February
  • 10 March
  • 22 March
  • 7 April

Upon registering for the webinar, individuals will be able to choose the practical date and location that best suits. 

Registerations for the first course of the year on the 2 February are open. For more information and to register click here:

Level 2 Sports Trainer Course

Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 February, Kidman Park

To complete the Level 2 Sports Trainers course, participants must have been an Accredited Level 1 Trainer for 12 months or completed a minimum of 50 hours as an Accredited Trainer. 

Places in this course are limited. Registrations are open. For more information and to register, click here:

Regional Level 2 courses are planned and dates will be made available shortly. 

SASMA is also able to help with resources, policies and recommendations. We also offer a variety of workshops that can be run at clubs and associations, including injury prevention and management as well as taping. 

I would be grateful if you would be able to share the above information with your networks.
