Coach Development Team

We’re excited to announce that in 2019 Seaforth FC will officially launch a number of coach and player development initiatives, one of which is the Coach Development Team.

Comprised of 6 to 10 experienced and accredited coaches, the coach development team will spearhead a number of initiatives and be able to offer support to coaches in the Seaforth FC ranks.  In terms of the kinds of support that will be offered to players and coaches, the coach development team will be able to:

  • Assist coaches in the taking of training sessions as required;
  • Run regular information forums, and
  • Hold practical workshops out on the fields.

As part of the Coach Development Team, Seaforth FC will have 2 registered Club Coach Coordinators who will work within the MWFA’s Club Coaching Coordinator (CCC) program to improve the standard of coaching at Seaforth FC.

Support at Training Sessions

Members of our Coach Development Team are available to attend a team’s training session to assist and mentor the coach.  The focus will be aligning the team’s training towards the Skill Development Objectives that Seaforth FC has established.

We’ll be pro-actively contacting all teams from U8 and above to offer for one of our team members to visit your team a number of times throughout the season.

In order to find out more about the program or if you would like to find out when one of our team members could come along to your team’s training, please contact our Manager, Development.

Coaches Forums and Practical Workshops

Throughout the year we’ll be conducting Coaches Forums with highly qualified guest speakers brought in from outside of the club and to provide opportunities for networking and feedback.

We’ll also be running practical hands-on workshops given by the head coach of our Development Academy and our Coach Development Team.

More details will be published soon with dates for these events.
