Recreation Instructors

Many SCRD recreation programs are taught by skilled and talented Sunshine Coast residents who are keen to share their talents with others.

There are two different ways to instruct a class in Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) recreation facilities.

  1. Become an instructor for SCRD recreation programs
  2. Become a third-party practitioner and use SCRD facilities to instruct, coach or train your clients.


1. Become an instructor

Do you, or someone you know, have a program idea that you would like to share with Sunshine Coast residents? Are you interested in being a contract instructor for Recreation? We are recruiting contract instructors for group fitness, children/youth, arts/culture and more! Select the form applicable to you from the links below, follow the instructions and we hope to hear from you soon!

2. Become a third-party practitioner

Individuals who would like to use SCRD facilities to instruct, train or coach for a non-SCRD program or service (such as personal trainers, physiotherapists using for patients’ rehabilitation etc) in SCRD recreation facilities are required to register as a Third-Party Practitioner with the SCRD and renew this registration every year. This is to ensure those offering services in our facilities have appropriate training and insurance for what they are doing.

There are many benefits to registering with the SCRD. These include:

  • The practitioners information can be available for community if requested.
  • Recognition that the practitioner meets industry standards to offer services.
  • Registration identifies the practitioner as an approved trainer to work in our facilities.

If you have never applied to become a third-party practitioner, you must first complete the SCRD First time Practitioner Package which is linked below. Please note that it can take up to a week to process the application.
