Coach Development is alive and kicking at Football NSW as 17 ‘C’ Licence Coaching Courses delivered across eight associations and 235 participants have taken place in 2022.
Along with 4 courses being administered at Football NSW headquarters, there have also been ‘C’ Licence Coaching Courses featured at the Northern Suburbs FA, North West Sydney FA, Blacktown District Soccer FA, Hills FA, Manly Warringah FA, Macarthur FA, Southern Districts Soccer FA as well as a joint effort involving Canterbury District Soccer FA, Football St George and Eastern Suburbs FA.
Regional ‘C’ Licnese Courses have also taken shape in Albury/Wodonga, Bathurst, and the Southern Highlands while a Level 1 Goalkeeper Course has also taken shape.
Football NSW’s Technical Director Warren Grieve reaffirmed his intentions that more coaching courses delivered across the state will in turn see more quality coaches coming through the ranks.
“During a period that has presented significant challenges, it has been incredibly pleasing to be able to maintain our full commitment toward Coach Development.
“Having delivered 17 courses across Metropolitan and Regional NSW in such a short space of time demonstrates how our team have not only been flexible and adaptable to varying environments, but they have also shown commitment and professionalism to the overall process.
“We must also express our sincere thanks to the Member Associations, Regional Branches and the exceptional staff they’ve all had at their disposal which has greatly assisted to expertly deliver each of these courses.
“The Coach Development team has and will continue to grow providing more opportunities for aspiring coaches across the state.
“It’s great to see that our current educators provide quality and dedicated support and mentorship which in turn encourages a growth mindset of how we want to develop the next generation of potential coaches.”
