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 2020 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 October and finishing in February 2021 after a break. All sessions will take place on Wednesday nights from 7pm at Cromer Park on the following dates.
November 4, 11, 18 and 25
December 2, 9 and 16
February 3, 10, 17 and 24
Additionally, there will be 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 2021 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 and personal development.
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.
