female coach

The MWFA are pleased to announce the female coaching scholarship. The MWFA have recognised the need to increase our female coaching pool from 12% to upwards of 20% over the next three years.

Watch this short video for more information.

The announcement of the female coaching scholarship will be a key component to help us achieve this goal.

Two female coaches with a few years coaching experience will be selected for 2017/2018 to receive funding to attend the FFA C Licence at Cromer Park in October 2017, and also the Football NSW state conference at Valentines Park. Coaches can choose either the Youth C Licence or Senior C Licence course.

The dates for the C Licence are:

Part 1 6th, 7th and 8th October

Part 2 14th, 15th, 28th 29th October

All dates must be attended to complete the course.

The funding for the scholarship will be in two installments. 50% will be paid by the MWFA at the start of the course with the remaining 50% paid for by the coach or their respective club. Once tasks throughout 2018 are completed the remaining 50% will be reimbursed to the candidate.

Tasks to be completed will be:

  • Final Assessment of C Licence completed in 2018 (MWFA will help record the session and support you through the assessment)
  • Mentoring of female coaches at your respective club
  • Self-reflection sessions held with MWFA Coach Development Manager
  • Promotional articles & interviews on behalf of MWFA to promote female coaching
