Club Coach Coordinators Prove to Strengthen Community Clubs

June 22nd, 2018

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) held their second Club Coach Coordinator (CCC) workshops last month for 2018.

Workshops were held in the Hunter, Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Grafton, Ballina and Lismore and were attended by twenty-five (25) CCC’s.

The CCC program is a Football Federation Australia (FFA) initiative that provides support for coaches within a club environment.

NNSWF Coach Education Coordinator Tom Oldaker said that the primary purpose of the role is to provide relevant and valued coach support.

“Monitoring and mentoring coaches to conduct appropriate quality football activities will enhance both the player and coach experience,” Oldaker said.

The key learning outcomes of the workshops were to identify and address the perceived and actual barriers and challenges faced by the CCC’s.

“In the workshops, Club Coach Coordinators discussed and shared experiences on the barriers and challenges they faced. Findings from the workshop suggest these are consistent with the research conducted throughout Australia.

“We have identified time restriction, narrow-minded coaches who are resilient to change and a poor communication structure within clubs are among some of the biggest challenges our CCC’s face,” Oldaker concluded.

 

 

FFA National Community Coach Development Manager, Les Bee who assisted in the delivery of the Hunter workshop said: “the Club Coach Coordinators shared a range of experiences that showed innovative and flexible ways of supporting coaches within their club.”

“A significant outcome at one club was the retention of coaches over a number of years, ensuring the coaching experience benefits the players. The program is going from strength to strength with the continued involvement of these dedicated Club Coach Coordinators.”

NNSWF will work closely with FFA to provide the best practice to support the CCC’s in managing these challenges.

The next CCC’s workshops will be held in Armidale and Tamworth.
