Curl Curl FC Coaching Expectations 


Welcome, and thanks for giving up your time to coach a football team at Curl Curl FC.


Please read the Curl Curl Coaching Philosophy for an overview of our club approach to coaching.  


Below are some more specific expectations for your coaching season, aimed particularly at new and junior coaches:

• Use the comprehensive online coaching resource http://www.ffacoachingresource.com.au/ for ideas for drills.


• Attend the licence course relevant to the age group you are coaching.  
These are free to all MWFA coaches.

• Value all players equally. All players are entitled to equal game time.

 Rotate your players on a regular basis. It is not acceptable to decide that a junior can only play as a defender. If you think you have such a player, it is your challenge to encourage new skills and instil confidence to change this. 

• The development pathway is firstly to encourage ball mastery i.e. control and dribbling skills. Encouragement to pass the ball in difficult situations or to a player in space comes later and instructing the kids to belt the ball away is certainly not the favoured approach. 

• Have a good understanding of position numbers, position formations and player development.  

Attendance at courses will help with this knowledge.

• Attend some of the Monday night skill development sessions being run 4-7pm at Adam St, Curl Curl to get idea’s for drills.

• Be fun, patient and enthusiastic at all times when coaching kids.  

Ask the kids questions.

• Be appropriately dressed when taking sessions and attending games.  

The club supplies polo shirts free to all coaches and we encourage you to wear them.

• Know the rules associated with your age group.

Please DO NOT TRAIN IN THE GOAL MOUTH.
