Welcome to the Coaches Corner 

About Coaching

As a parent-run organization, we are always looking for volunteer help!  If you would like to pitch in and coach, please take a quick read through the following information and fill out the form below. 

Help us to create a fun, competitive, but most importantly an enjoyable day each weekend! 


Coaching Guidelines 

1. Set a positive example

As a coach, you are a role model for the players. Make sure to demonstrate positive behavior on and off the field, such as good sportsmanship and respect for others. Should there be a challenge presented by a parent, immediately seek our support! 

2. Keep it fun

Players are more likely to enjoy Footy and continue playing if they are having fun. Create an atmosphere of enjoyment and positivity during practices and games.

3. Emphasize sportsmanship

Encourage players to respect their opponents and referees, and to play fairly. Teach them that winning is not the only important thing, and that good sportsmanship is a crucial part of the game.

4. Be Prepared

Keep up to date with us on the latest coaching changes and updates to the program. If you are not a soccer expert, don't hesitate to seek out support from other coaches or the program. Its not a complicated sport!  

Remember, as a coach, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of our young players.
