Community Coaching Course Dates For 2019
MWFA is pleased to announce a new schedule of Community Coaching Course dates for the 2019 pre-season, offering coaches the opportunity to develop their skills and pick up some ideas to help organise fun, safe and engaging training sessions.
MWFA is committed to making coach development flexible and accessible to all of our stakeholders, with a variety of dates and locations available across the Northern Beaches over the next few months (with more still to come), along with other coach development opportunities being offered throughout the season.
ALDI MiniRoos Certificates
This course is designed for coaches/managers/volunteers and even parents involved with age groups U6 U11.
The 3-hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN. The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.
The ALDI MiniRoos Certificate is FREE OF CHARGE for all participants, but online registration is still compulsory.
