Off-Season Coaching Courses Available

off season courses 2020

 

With the winter football season now complete, MWFA is pleased to announce that coach development opportunities don’t stop over the summer, with several courses available for coaches keen to upskill themselves and pick up some ideas to help organise fun, safe and engaging training sessions during the quieter time of the year.

 

As usual, we will be running a flexible 14-hour format for the FFA Skill and Game Training Certificates to make it more convenient and also more realistic for coaches to develop their knowledge and skills while working with their own team at their club. This incorporates a minimum of 7 hours on-course time, followed by post-course support including online self-reflections and feedback, being mentored by their club CCC, and attending at least one MWFA coach workshop of their choice either at their club or at Cromer Park during the 2021 season.

 

PAYMENT INFORMATION

The upfront cost of the Skill and Game Training Certificates is $90 which should be paid directly to MWFA, not through playfootball, and sent before the course start date. If you are an MWFA registered coach in the 2020 season, we will fully refund the course fee to you upon completion of all post-course tasks mentioned above. The $90 course fee should be sent via bank transfer to the following account:
