Spreading the gospel according to Football will be on the agenda next Monday 9th of May as Football NSW will be staging a one-week Southern Regional Roadshow.
Football NSW Coach Education Manager Oscar Gonzalez along with former Matildas and current Development Officer for Women’s Football and Schools Renee Rollason as well as another former Matilda and current Women’s & Girls Development Officer Servet Uzunlar will be leading the way with various club and school appearances preaching the world game to players and coaches alike.
The roadshow will also play a pivotal role in further educating teachers and parents about the coaching aspects of the game.
Gonzalez was eagerly anticipating the Regional Roadshow which was yet another opportunity for football to spread its wings in the Southern part of NSW.
"The roadshow is key to us working with our regional Associations with the aim of developing football partnerships in schools and to assist teachers to provide better outcomes for students as well educating our coaches and parents through courses and workshops.
“In addition, it also provides a key opportunity to work with our Coach Developers to ensure we maintain the highest standards of delivery and experience to our members.”
