MWFA is pleased to confirm a series official Football Australia Coaching Courses and Coach Workshops now available over the summer.
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. 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, while for more advanced and committed coaches who have already completed a Skill or Game Training course, we will shortly announce 2 x FA C-Licences to be held at Cromer Park at the end of this year as well as early 2023.
Summer Soccer Coach Workshops
MWFA and FKFC will also be hosting two workshops for coaches working with summer soccer teams at the Melwood Oval clubhouse on Monday September 19.
These workshops will cover topics including:
- Match coaching (pre-game, half time, during the game etc)
- Substitute and position rotation/management
- Creating good team culture including managing parents
- Basic advice for running fun and effective training sessions
The workshops will take place at the following times. Please ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes early to sign in so the workshops can start and finish on time.
6:00pm – 7:00pm U6 to U8 coaches
7:15pm – 8:15pm U9+ coaches
These workshops are free but registration is required. See here: https://manlyunited.wufoo.com/forms/mwfa-2022-coach-workshops-registration/
