Role of Coaches and Managers

Volunteer coaches and managers are critical to the running of Seaforth FC. Without the time and energy that all coaches and managers give to their team, there simply wouldn’t be a club.

Coaches lead their teams training sessions during the week and manage the team on game days. The manager is responsible for team communication, liaison with Seaforth FC through the relevant Age Coordinator and assigning team duties (e.g. whose bringing the half-time oranges and snakes) during the season.

Seaforth FC truly hopes you have a enjoyable, fun-filled and exciting 2019 Season.

Registration Information

Along with players, all team coaches and managers need to register through FFA Play Football and also receive a Working With Children (WWC) Clearance (U18 and below only) from the NSW Government. The WWC Clearance is a mandatory requirement that was introduced in 2018, with each clearance valid for 5 years.

The following are the key steps to register to play football for Seaforth FC in 2019:

For further information, please refer to the FFA Play Football information and FAQs or contact the relevant Age Coordinator.

Next Steps

Soon after the registration period has closed and grading has been completed, the Age Coordinator will notify all registered players of the teams. Once the teams have been released, it is the responsibility of each team to complete the following next steps:

  • Contact the Training Ground Coordinator to select a suitable date and location for the teams weekly training session.
  • The manager and/or coach must attend the Information Session to learn about the season ahead and collect their teams gear (training balls, match ball, training bids, cones and player jerseys, shorts and socks).

For any questions or issues that arrive prior to and during the season, the team manager can contact the relevant Age Coordinator for assistance and support.
