The Football West State Coaching Conference will take place on October 28 and 29, with FFA Technical Director Eric Abrams and Hockey WA High Performance Manager and State Hockey Team Head Coach Jason Butcher making guest appearances.

The Conference is a yearly event organised by individual Member Federations with the dual purpose of providing technical and tactical updates to accredited coaches, while providing re-accreditation points for the coaches attending.

The Conference Agenda will address topics of interest as well as national and local coaching updates. A practical Model Session for Skill Acquisition Program and Game Training age groups will be presented by NPL and Talent Support Program players, as well as the WA State U14 Boys squad.
