Swans Academy Coaches Thrive in 2017

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 - 3:46 PM by Christian Tufilli

10 Community Youth Football coaches from the Swans District were given the opportunity to further develop their coaching skills alongside WA Football League (WAFL) coaches, Talent Managers and WAFC District Development Staff over the past 6 months.

Coaches were able to buddy up with a mentor for the duration of the program and took part in a series of professional development sessions that focus on skill development, match-day coaching and club training.

The main aim of the program was to provide an opportunity for community coaches to improve their skills to ensure the standard of community coaching is continually being enhanced to meet the changing needs of the players and the sport itself.

Program organiser, WAFC Metro Central District Operations Manager Scott Faulkner said the program is all about sharing and developing best coaching practice. “The Community Coach Academy program aims to provide an inner-sanctum experience for youth-aged community coaches, and an opportunity for the sharing of best practice,” Faulkner said.

“Coaches are put through an extensive program that aims to improve all facets of their coaching, from training through to match day.” If the Coaching Academy program is for you, express your interest through the following link. If the Coaching Academy program is for you, express your interest through the following link –REGISTER INTEREST
