MWFA would like to congratulate another 23 coaches for completing an intense 7 days of coach development on the recent FFA Youth C-Licence. It was a big challenge for everyone, but also a lot of fun with a lot of learning taking place, which they will now be able to pass on to their players and also other coaches.
The majority of participants were from within MWFA, with a good spread across several clubs, including 2020 Female Scholarship winners Marilinda Winter, Kiah Kennedy and Sai van Wegen, as well as 4 coaches from the 2020 Future Coaches Program.
“Thanks to Eugene Lawrenz and Nick Robb for a fantastic and professional course. They presented an awesome course and I got so much out of the interaction and learning to look at football and also my own coaching style in a whole new light. It’s given me a renewed confidence and enthusiasm for the season ahead.”
– Shaun Taylor (Narrabeen U12 Boys)
“The course was both challenging and rewarding. As was evident from the course, [coach] education is a journey not a destination. The mix of practical and theory was well balanced and meant the sessions flew by. Eugene and Nick’s knowledge and experience certainly helped us question why and what we coach.”
– Brett Acton (St Ives U14 Boys)
MWFA would like to wish all of these coaches the best with their coaching moving forward, and commend them for their commitment to the never ending process of learning and personal development.
MWFA will look to host more FFA/AFC C-Licence coaching courses later this year in the post season period and into the future.
In the meantime, all interested coaches are strongly encouraged to undertake official FFA community coaching courses in the first instance. See here for more information: https://www.mwfa.com.au/2021/01/28/new-coaching-courses-confirmed/
