Coaches from the Far North Coast were the winners on the day after receiving valuable coaching tips during a Newcastle Permanent Community Coaching Master Class held recently in Bangalow.
Hosted by Bangalow Football Club, the Master Class, conducted by Northern NSW Football Technical Director Michael Brown, was well attended with coaches leaving with valuable information to take back to their clubs and players.
Football Far North Coast Technical Director Victor Stokes took the opportunity to involve some of the Football Far North Coast’s (FFNC) Skills Acquisition players in the drills run by Michael Browne.
“The benefit of having Michael give technical instruction to our young players while also helping the coaches, was well received. “Stokes said.
FFNC General Manager Steve Mackney who was also in attendance applauded the concept of using the experience and profile of the NNSWF Technical Director to benefit community football across the zones.
“Although coaching resources can be found on the website, having personal access to individuals with advanced technical skills, is an important opportunity and we thank Newcastle Permanent for the support that they give in making such events possible.” Mackney said.
The Newcastle Permanent Master Class program will continue across Northern NSW in the months ahead with programs scheduled for North Coast (April 8) and Mid North Coast (May 3) presented by Northern NSW Football’s Partner in Community Football, Newcastle Permanent.
