There’s much to be excited about as Football NSW prepares for its ‘Sold Out’ 2018 State Coaching Conference this Sunday at Valentine Sports Park.
Designed as one of the means for coaches to meet the required four-year revalidation requirements in order to keep their accreditation valid, the day will feature a number of keynote speakers who are very familiar with the Australian football environment.
The likes of current Australian Under 17 Joeys Head Coach Trevor Morgan, FFA’s Girls Football Development Manager Debbie Fisher, Professor Damien Farrow formally of the AIS and now at Victoria University and former Hyundai A-League coach Phil Moss are just some of the guests that will be on show this Sunday.
FoxSports’ Adam Peacock will also be in attendance and will be chatting about Football in the Media.
Football NSW’s Technical Director (Men’s/Boys) Warren Grieve was eagerly anticipating the State Coaching Conference and was buoyed by the hype surrounding the event.
“It is pleasing to see so many coaches showing a desire to develop themselves.
“These conferences are a great opportunity for coaches to learn and network in the off-season to prepare themselves for the following season.
“For us as an organisation, it also shows the demand from the football community for ongoing professional development and this is an area that Football NSW will continue to grow in 2019 for our members.”
There will also be a special presentation conducted by Catalpult Systems’ Tom Pettigrew who will be promoting GPS in football while Physio4all and Manly United’s Steve Felsher will be discussing the developing of Player Welfare Culture.
Other topics that will be presented on the day include the Skill Acquisition Phase, Football Coaches Australia and Career Management while practical and inside sessions will also be conducted.
