IMG_9426

 

MWFA is pleased to announce FFA Community Coaching Course dates for the 2021 season, offering coaches the opportunity to develop their skills and pick up some ideas to help organise fun, safe and engaging training sessions.

MWFA is committed to making coach development flexible and accessible to all of our stakeholders, with a variety of dates and locations available across the Northern Beaches over the next few months, along with other coach development opportunities being offered throughout the season.

More courses will also be added during the pre-season period and early season as they are confirmed.

 

MiniRoos Certificates

This course is designed for coaches/managers/volunteers and even parents involved with age groups U6 to U11.
The 3-hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN. The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.
The MiniRoos Certificate is FREE OF CHARGE for all participants, but online registration is still compulsory.

COURSE STRUCTURE

MWFA runs 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.

 

Skill Training Certificates

This course is designed to up-skill coaches of age groups U8 to U13.
In the Skill Acquisition Phase, the coach MUST focus on building a solid foundation of technical skill. Candidates will also learn about session planning, organisation, coaching methodology, as well as match day coaching.
The course is conducted over 14 hours, is fully practical and deals with the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills: First Touch, Striking the Ball, Running with the Ball and 1 v 1.
