Coaching Expectations

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

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;

  • Read and be familiar with your age groups ‘Building Block” in the national curriculum
  • Attend the training certificate 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 instill confidence to change this.  
  • Have a good understanding of position numbers, position formations and player development.  Training courses will help with this knowledge.
  • Attend some of the Monday night Skill Development Program sessions being run 4-7pm at Abbott Rd 5 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.
  • Utilise the coaching checklist below to evaluate your own training sessions.


Coaching Checklist

At Curl Curl Football Club we have a coaching checklist that we encourage all our coaches to utilize.  At the end of each session we look for our coaches to have ticked off all the below questions, and if you haven’t can you find ways to tick them off in the future?

o   Did your practice start inside 2 mins?

o   Did you use a ball for your warm up?

o   Did the players play a game for 20 mins?

o   Did the players achieve your objective?

o   Was your session fun?

o   Was it safe?

o   Were all players involved?
