You don’t have to pay straight away when you register (you can close the window at the invoice screen) and pay later, or even send the invoice to your club if they are paying for your registration. For specific inquiries contact coached@northernnswfootball.com.au

What do I need to bring?

Bring an open mind, be ready to receive new information, and your share ideas with the group.

The course facilitator will bring course manuals and session plans for participants to view while on the course.

Please bring a notepad and pen if you wish to take further notes during the course.

Depending on the venue, you may need to bring lunch for the allocated lunch- break if shops are not nearby.

Be sun smart. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and water.

Bring comfortable clothes for as we are outside on a field for most of this course.

When will I receive my Certificate?
Your certificate will be available online 2-3 days after the completion of the course. Click here and enter your FFA number to access

Is there any prerequisite needed to attend this course?

There are no prerequisites needed to attend a community certificate course. However it is beneficial to have completed the previous certificate course so the knowledge gap is less when attending a course. I.e. The Skill Training Certificate looks at how to be organised as a coach, start quickly, and keep your players engaged.

It is also beneficial to view the online resources surrounding the course before you attend.

Is there an assessment?
There is no formal assessment for certificate courses, completion is based on your active participation.

Coaches are encouraged to have a go at delivering sessions within a comfortable environment and receive feedback from a coach developer.

Coaches are expected to actively participate during the course, and be competent in the required coaching behaviors in order to complete a certificate course.

How long is my accreditation valid?
Community Coaching Certificates are valid for a period of four years. If you wish to extend your qualification please contact our coach education team on coached@northernnswfootball.com.au.

Does the course need minimum numbers?

We want to make sure that all coaches have the opportunity to attend a certificate course and there are flexible delivery options available for coaches and clubs in regional areas.

We will endeavor to deliver courses with a minimum of six registered coaches.

This requires bringing players for model sessions. Please speak with your coach developer about these flexible delivery options.

How long does the course go for?
 Please note – the Game Training course was originally delivered as a 14 hour face to face course.
Northern NSW Football will now be delivering the course in 8 face to face hours. Upon completing the Senior Training Certificate coaches are expected to make up the additional course hours through self-learning and/or attending workshops provided by Northern NSW Football.
