The SSFA is offering the Skills Training Coaching Certificate Course aimed at coaches of 8-14-year-old players. If you are coaching in these age groups you will find the information on these courses invaluable.

The courses are largely practical in nature so you will get to experience first-hand some of the latest methods and techniques used in the FFA National Curriculum. You will also receive FFA accreditation and an opportunity to meet fellow coaches with similar objectives.

Skills Training Certificate (10 hours)

  • Cost: $100 (GRFC will reimburse)
  • When: Friday 12 Feb 6.00pm-9.00pm & Saturday 13 Feb 9.00am- 4.00pm
  • Where: Harrie Dening Football Centre, Bates Drive Kareela

Much of this course is practical and most of the work is done in groups and the main role of the presenter is to ensure each candidate understands the course – we will help you to get your coaching qualification in a friendly inclusive environment.

What do you need to do to register and prepare for the course?

1. Register online here - make sure you click on the correct course and location (i.e. Skill Training Certificate at Sutherland Shire Football Assoc – Location is Kareela)

We were delighted to learn last week that, as part of the Community Building Partnership, we will be receiving $43,000 to upgrade our clubhouse. We thank Eleni Petinos MP for her continued support, and also to all of the Tigers who took the time to vote for our submission!
