female scholarship

MWFA are excited to announce that Sharna Barras and Catriona Ormond have been awarded the Female Coaching Scholarship for 2019.

This scholarship program is offered as part of the MWFAs commitment to increasing the number of female coaches on the Northern Beaches. It was a tough decision on who to select with 8 very strong applications being received, but we are confident that both Sharna and Catriona will make full use of this opportunity and become great role models for other female coaches. Sharna is currently a CCC at CC Strikers, while Catriona coaches at Seaforth, and both will receive funding to attend the FFA C-Licence at Cromer Park starting next week, along with ongoing mentoring, opportunities to develop new skills, and give back by sharing what theyll learn with other female players and coaches.

I am so thankful and excited for the opportunity to complete my C-Licence. I am looking forward to being able to pass on this knowledge to coaches and younger players.

  • Sharna Barras

I feel fortunate and privileged to have been given the opportunity to gain my C-Licence. Through further education and training I will increase my skills and knowledge and therefore improve my coaching. I am looking forward to being able to guide and encourage our female coaches of tomorrow.

  • Catriona Ormond

MWFA would like to congratulate both coaches and we wish them the best of luck with the upcoming C-Licence course. We would also like to encourage the other applicants and all other female coaches to continue their development, and MWFA will continue to look for more ways to provide you with support in the 2020 season.
