For the past two consecutive days, Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has hosted a Coach Developers Workshop at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility in Speers Point that has seen tables turned with the coach educators being ‘educated’!

Four regional Member Zones were represented including North Coast Football, Far North Coast Football, Mid North Coast and Northern Inland.

The program reflects NNSWF’s strategic priority to deliver professional development pathways and provide ongoing support and resources to our coaches.

The Coach Developer Workshop is a key part of this process and is a valuable tool in increasing the network of well trained and experienced “Coach Developers” within Northern NSW, who are able to assist coaches deliver a better football experience for their players.

The workshop was presented by FFA’s National Community Coach Development Manager, Les Bee with the objective being to provide specific training and education to identified people within our game to assist them in developing and educating new and existing football coaches within their club or programs.

Bee’s experience was further complemented by former Westfield Matilda Lauren Colthorpe and former Hyundai A-League star and New Zealand international Leo Bertos, who bought a wealth of knowledge to the group and shared their international experience with participants.

The workshop modules included both practical as well as theory sessions identifying best practice skills and behaviours required of successful coach developers. Modules included different delivery styles of coaching, listening and observation skills and assessment methods.

“The two day course was an opportunity for Northern NSW Football to engage our current and potential coach educators in intensive training which will enhance their ability to deliver consistent, high quality and importantly enjoyable coach education experiences that align with FFA’s National Football Curriculum and best practice for adult learning ,’ Community Football Manager Peter Haynes said.
