Calling All Potential Coaches! – PLEASE READ!

Hi Again,

With grading nearing completion and registrations rolling in (and closing soon), the committee have started to set their minds to organising teams for the new season. As noted previously, a key area we would like to work on this year is the depth and quality of our coaching, as this is something that will positively benefit ALL the kids in the club. As such, we ideally want to form as many teams as possible around kids who have a parent who has put their name forward to coach, and who ideally has some coaching background or football experience. We think trying to organise teams this way (where possible) will have an advantage over selecting teams and then hoping that one of the parents in that team will be prepared to offer to coach, as we appreciate that may put some parents in an awkward position at times.

However, as we could potentially have 60 teams(!) this year, that is going to require a number of people volunteering to coach for this new approach to work.

So, if you are prepared to offer to coach, could you please email with your name, your child’s name, your child’s grade this year and what coaching/football experience you have. Responses by Sunday 15th March would be appreciated as that gives us a week to finalise teams.

As part of this years coaching drive, once Team Brief has been held, we will be holding a coaching workshop/get-together before the season starts just to share some ideas, experiences and coaching material.

Lastly, on the subject of coaching improvement, WaiBOP run a number of coaching courses through the year, some of which are free. We will send out more details of these later, but there is a Goalkeeper Intro Coaching Course THIS Friday 6pm to 8pm. Its free, and you can register via the WaiBOP Webiste, under ‘Coach Education, 2015 Courses’. I would recommend it to anyone considering coaching a team in 9th Grade and above this year. I may see you there!

Cheers, Scott
