MWFA is pleased to confirm a series official FA Community Coaching Courses now available over the summer.
These may also be the final opportunity to complete the Skill and Game Training courses in their current format, as FA is looking to restructure the Coach Development pathway for 2022, so if you’ve been keen to attend either of these, we strongly encourage you to do so now. For any coaches working with U9s and below or looking for a more basic introduction to coaching, a number of MiniRoos Certificates will be available in pre-season next year, but you may still want to consider attending some of our workshops or the Skill Training course.
The FA Community Courses are fully practical and interactive, and help coaches organise fun, safe and engaging training sessions. Both courses are delivered in a flexible format, with a 7 hour commitment initially, and then some tasks to complete at home, as well as attending a workshop of your choice to fulfill all of the course requirements. The cost is $90 paid directly to MWFA. but coaches registered with MWFA are fully reimbursed once they complete all the course tasks.
