MWFA 2019 Female Coaching Scholarship Program Applications Now Open

As part of the MWFAs commitment to increasing the number of female coaches on the Northern Beaches, we are pleased to once again offer a Female Coaching Scholarship Program in 2019.

Two female coaches with a few years of coaching experience will be selected to receive funding to attend the FFA C-Licence at Cromer Park in either September/October 2019 (Youth), or February 2020 (Senior), depending on their interest.

The funding for the scholarship will be in two instalments: 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 the scholarship recipient has completed all of the Scholarship Program tasks in the 2020 season, the remaining 50% will be reimbursed.

In addition to the C-Licence course, the Scholarship Program will include ongoing mentoring, opportunities to develop new skills and give back by sharing what theyve learnt with other female coaches, and promoting female coaches in the sport.

“Following the completion of my C Licence, I have a greater understanding of implementing the 4 core skills in training and games. I have adjusted the way I approach training and games, and I think the extra knowledge and skills have lifted my confidence as a coach and played a significant role in the success of the W11 Pittwater team who I coach.”
– Jane Lillycrop (2018 Female Scholarship Recipient)

Dates for the Youth C-Licence in September/October at Cromer Park have been confirmed. Please see here for more details:

Dates for the Senior C-Licence in February will be confirmed and posted here soon.
