Hosting a Course
If you wish to host a live assessment day for your C Licence assessment please read through and use the below form
To ensure that coaching courses are conducted when Clubs & their coaches require them rather than being directed by FV, this course request form has been created.
If there is a demand within a club for a course (MiniRoos, Skill Training or Game Training) please complete this Jotform link.
To be considered to host a coaching course at your club, there are key requirements that need to be met. Your venue must be able to provide the following for the entirety of the course:
- Access to a marked pitch (with lights - if conducted at night).
- Access to changing rooms.
- Access to a classroom/clubroom space that has tables and chairs.
- Ideally a whiteboard/AV equipment (not mandatory but preferred).
Note: Completion of the form does not guarantee scheduling of course.
Advanced Coaching Courses
These courses are designed to educate coaches how to organise and conduct coaching practices under the FFA National Curriculum. Advanced Courses are aimed at coaches currently coaching at elite level or perspective coaches who would be interested in pursuing coaching at an elite level.
The pre-requisites for enrolling in these courses would be that you would have to be at least 18 years of age, physically fit to participate in all practical sessions. It is highly recommended that prior to applying for the Advanced courses, that you do a community coaching course, based on the age-group team that you currently coach.
