Community Coaches Learn From Westfield Matilda’s and Australia’s Coach of the Year At Newcastle Permanent Master Class

December 20th, 2017

Northern NSW Football and Newcastle Permanent were proud to welcome Westfield Matildas Head Coach, Alen Stajcic, to McDonald Jones Stadium to conduct the Newcastle Permanent Community Coaching Master Class last weekend.

After another record year for the Westfield Matildas and being recently named as AIS Sport’s Coach of the Year at the AIS Sport Performance Awards last week, Stajcic shared a lot of his knowledge as a coach and tactics from the last four recent matches the Westfield Matilda’s had played as well as the match between the US at the Tournament of Nations.

With over 30 coaches in attendance, Stajcic opened the discussions at the end of the Master Class about the development of the local game in Australia and the future it is leading to.

“It was good to open dialogue on the local game and ways to help our kids develop even more than what they have over the past few years,” Stajcic said.

Stajcic was pleased with the amount of interest the coaches had on the day and said that he hopes the class was as beneficial for their coach development as it was for him.

“Like every coaching course you go to or every bit of education you get, you always take away something from events like this.”

“I know I certainly did just from the questions I got from the audience, you always take away some bit of insight that can help you down the track with your own coaching, so these courses and events are really important for coach development,” Stajcic concluded.

At the conclusion of the Masterclass, community coaches then stayed to watch the ‘doubleheader’ between the Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League and Hyundai A-League sides.
