When will I receive my Certificate?

Does the course need minimum numbers?

We want to make sure that all coaches have the opportunity to attend the course and there are flexible delivery options available for coaches and clubs in regional areas, and will endeavour to deliver courses with five coaches registered.

If players are available for model sessions than a course can be facilitated with fewer coaches. Please speak with your coach developer about these flexible delivery options.

Why is there a time difference between Regional and Metropolitan courses?

The biggest reason for differences in course times comes down to the number of participants on a course. Previously courses have needed a minimum of 16 participants in order to be delivered, however several courses in regional areas have been cancelled as a result leaving coaches without any alternative for attending a course. We will now deliver these courses for 8 coaches or less, and on a club by club basis with fewer participants.

Can a course be held at my club?

If you club has a club coaching coordinator, they can contact us to organise a club based course. Coaches will need to be registered on MyFootballClub in order to be eligible to attend.

Is there an assessment?

There is no formal assessment for the course, but coaches will receive feedback from a coach developer based on their involvement. Coaches are expected to actively participate during the course, and be competent in the required coaching behaviours in order to complete the course.

Is there any prerequisite needed to attend this course? 

There is no prerequisite needed to attend this community course. However it is beneficial to have attended the course relevant to the age group you are coaching (MiniRoos, Skill Training, Game Training)

How long is my accreditation valid?

Community Coaching Courses are valid for a period of four years. If you wish to extend your qualification please contact our office on (02) 49417225.
