The Club Coach Coordinator workshop will take place on Friday May 5.

Support role for Club Coach Coordinator

Football West News

Football West is looking to expand the Club Coach Coordinator (CCC) pilot program, initiated by Football West and Football Federation Australia (FFA) in 2016.

Ten coaches took part in the program, including two from Albany and two from Geraldton.

The role of the CCC program is pivotal in supporting and mentoring coaches within their clubs as they influence the experience of footballers whilst developing their skills.

The CCC initiative aims to support and guide community-level coaches, establish mentors for grassroots football coaches and provide relevant and valued coach support in the club environment to conduct appropriate quality football activities.

The CCC will support coaches to make sessions at their club safe, organised, enjoyable and engaging, while ensuring coaches are aware of any development opportunities and up-to-date information related to coach education.

The program will also ensure coach registration is completed for each club coach. All CCC’s will be actively supported in the ongoing development of their players and coaches by Football West mentors.

Coaches are key influencers in providing a safe, fun and enjoyable environment for players. It is important to recognise that the CCC role is not expected to be an additional club position; merely a support role for new and inexperienced coaches. It is envisaged that a CCC will continue to coach whilst offering tips and hints at a time that fits within their coaching schedule.

Potential CCC mentors require two to three years’ coaching experience at a junior level and some knowledge of the National Curriculum and relevant support resources.

The program will take place Gibbney Reserve, Maylands on Friday, May 5 from 6-8pm.
