Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) is pleased to announce the Newcastle Permanent Coach of the Month awards for July across its seven Member Zones.
Football enriches character, intelligence, coordination and skill and each season, brave men and women step up to the plate and take on the task of helping our young athletes reach their potential: the coach.
“Coaching is one of the most important factors in the football experience had by our players,” NNSWF Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said.
“It is important that coaches like Lucy, Dean, Imogen, Troy, Nadine, Lindsay and Marie continue the great work they are doing at their respective clubs so that their players develop a love for the game and continue to have the best football experience possible.”
Each month, one registered coach from each of NNSWF’s seven Member Zones will be awarded the Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Month award.
Each winner will receive a Newcastle Permanent Community Coaching kit consisting of six balls, 20 markers, 10 bibs and a whistle, as well as a polo shirt and cap, to assist in fulfilling their roles at their respective club.
At the end of the season, each Zone will nominate one community coach from their pool of winners, to represent their Zone for the opportunity to be named Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year.
Newcastle Permanent CEO Bernadette Inglis echoed Haynes’ sentiments and applauded those who received the award.
“Coaches are integral in nurturing and developing the skills of young players to reach their full potential,” she said.
“Newcastle Permanent is committed to supporting community football across northern NSW and recognising those coaches who demonstrate a passion and dedication to developing their teams.”
