The Manly Warringah Football Association (MWFA) is the peak body responsible for the overall development, organisation and promotion of football through 17 clubs on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The MWFA manages more than 20,000 players in juniors, men’s and women’s and accordingly, a significant number of coaches. The MWFA is a Member of Football NSW, Football Australia and as such is affiliated with FIFA, the world governing body for football.
Community Coach Mentors will work within the area of community football to provide high quality leadership, education and support for coaches at club level to ensure all participants have a quality experience and strive for continuous improvement. This is a great opportunity for professional development and to take a leadership role in developing the game in our region.
Applicants will need to have availability across a variety of weeknights and occasionally on weekends as well, in particular in preparation for and during the winter football season (February to August). MWFA recognises that applicants are likely to have other employment outside of football and/or other coaching commitments, so some flexibility will be possible.
Renumeration will be dependant on a mix of experience, qualifications, skill set and total hours of work.
