Coaching opportunity for Talent Support Program

Football West News

Football West is seeking proactive and motivated coaches to assist with the Talent Support Program, the second tier of the Elite Development Pathway for boys in Western Australia.

The program, initiated in 2016 by Football West and Football Federation Australia, provides additional training to talented players aged 13 to 16 to assist their development and will be the base of selection for State U13 and U14 Boys teams for the National Youth Championships in 2018.

Candidates for the coaching positions will require a valid FFA B Licence (or be working towards it), will support the FFA Football National Curriculum and will have a proactive and updated approach towards coaching youth players. Previous experience in working with elite players will be an advantage.

As part of the program, players are selected yearly in an open-trial process. Those selected attend a maximum of two additional training sessions a week in a highly competitive environment to assist with their development.

The program is based in the North (on Wednesday evenings), Central (Saturday mornings), South (Wednesday evenings) and South West (Monday evenings).

If you are interested in applying to join the Talent Support Program, please contact Football West Technical Manager Cris Ola (cris.ola@footballwest.com.au) with your resume and a cover letter by Thursday, October 26.
