The State Titles are part of the Talented Player Pathway and players can be identified for Football NSW State, NPL and HAL Academy squads and teams.
For coaches these tournaments are a great opportunity to display an understanding of the National Curriculum and the Coaching Process consistent with Advanced Coach Education principles. The tournament environment helps coaches improve player management and planning skills with an unfamiliar group of players. Your own coaching experience will be expanded with an opportunity to step outside your normal club comfort zone. As with the players, this is an excellent opportunity for your own development and future identification for further advanced positions in the elite coaching area.
