Football Victoria (FV) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Active Football Coaches and Trainers (AFCAT).
Established in 2012, AFCAT was formed to provide coaches with valuable coaching materials and networking opportunities that allow coaches to discuss, debate and put forward ideas and perspectives through information sessions, professional development workshops and forums.
As part of the MoU, both Football Victoria and AFCAT will work together for the overall good of the game and specifically facilitate opportunities for Victorian coaches to develop their skills, improve their knowledge and enhance their progress within the sport.
Football Victoria and AFCAT will further develop the coaching pathway together and in particular encourage the involvement and accreditation of more female coaches at all levels of the game.
AFCAT President Ian Greener said he is delighted AFCAT has partnered with Football Victoria for the betterment of all coaches in the state:
“After six years and approximately 70 coach education workshops, it is exciting news to sign an MoU with the state’s governing body,” Greener said.
Football Victoria CEO Peter Filopoulos said he was looking forward to further enhancing experiences for all coaches in Victoria.
“With AFCAT’s assistance and support, we will be able to offer much needed support and on trend professional development material to all football coaches across Victoria, from grass roots to the elite level,” Filopoulos said.
More information regarding scheduled education workshops will be provided to coaches over the coming weeks.
