Football NSW are once again delighted to be working with Football Coaches Australia (FCA) at this year’s State Coaching Conference to be held at Valentine Sports Park on Sunday 10th November.
Key representatives, including President Mr Phil Moss, will deliver at this year’s conference in the new breakout sessions where participants can choose which session they wish to attend. The theme for the FCA breakout session is “Your Employment Conditions and Wellbeing”.
In a recent research partnership with the University of Queensland, FCA explored the employment conditions and well-being of football coaches in Australia.
The information collected from this analysis has helped FCA develop strategies to provide increased advocacy, professional development and wellbeing support to the many football coaches in the game. This session will expand upon these strategies for the benefit of FCA, its members and the sport as a whole.
The session will be delivered by Phil Moss, former Hyundai A-League Coach with the Central Coast Mariners and long-term Assistant to current Socceroos Coach Graham Arnold. Phil is the current President of FCA having been re-elected at its recent AGM. He has a demonstrated history of working in the high-performance and professional sport areas as well as in the media industry where he is a football analyst with Big Sports Breakfast, Fox Sports and Football Nation Radio.
Co-presenting with Moss will be Mr James Kitching. Mr Kitching is the former Head of Sports Legal Services, Disciplinary and Governance at the Asian Football Confederation, where he led a team responsible for all disciplinary, regulatory, and governance issues. He is the Founder and Managing Director of Kitching Sports, the first specialist sports regulation and business firm in the Asia-Pacific region. He regularly lectures at conferences and postgraduate degree programs and has published extensively on matters relating to sporting rules and their enforcement.
Warren Grieve Technical Director, Men & Boys is excited to once again be working in conjunction with Football Coaches Australia.
“FCA have gone from strength to strength in the last 18 months, since their introduction they proven to be considerably successful supporting coaches both here in Australia and overseas.
“It is important for coaches at all levels to understand their basic rights in the work place and what their Employment Conditions and Wellbeing should include. We look forward to once again having FCA as part of the conference. I would also encourage any coach that hasn’t already done so to sign up to Football Coaches Australia.”
This session will be one of a number of highlights of the day.
