Do you wish you had a mentor to help you develop as a coach, but finding someone willing and able (and available) is difficult?
Do you want more regular opportunities to develop your knowledge and skills beyond the occasional courses and workshops on offer?
And are you motivated to push yourself as a coach as far as you possibly can, and not afraid to be challenged?
MWFA is pleased to announce that applications for our Future Coaches Program in 2019 are now open.
This program is open to coaches currently active within MWFA, or anyone in the region looking to get into coaching.
This is a 12-month mentoring program designed to identify, develop and reward aspiring football coaches. There will be an initial phase of weekly sessions starting in late September and finishing in early December, all on Wednesday nights, along with other professional development opportunities throughout the summer and pre-season, all at no cost. Special guest mentors and experienced coaches will be invited to join these sessions to share their feedback and advice, and participants will then be mentored and supported throughout the 2020 season in their coaching. There is also the potential for coaches in this program to gain paid coaching opportunities with MWFA, MWFA clubs and/or Manly United.
The program will cover content relevant to the participants, including potential areas such as training sessions, match day coaching, video analysis, periodisation, leadership, man management, presenting to coaches, mentoring coaches, and preparing job applications. This will be a very intensive and challenging program where participants will be expected to show a high level of commitment and push each other to raise the bar as high as possible.
