Coaching in 2016


Coaching at WJFNC in 2016

For those interested in coaching either FOOTBALL or NETBALL in 2016, the club is now taking expressions of interest. Positions include senior, assistant and skills coaches at all levels from under 10 (football) to 17u(netball).

Each team will have their own senior coach who must must have a WWCC and also have attained a level 1 coaching qualification as well as a capacity to hold at least one training session a week – older teams may train twice a week – in addition to match days. They must also agree to adhere to the code of conduct policies of the RDFNL and WJFNC. The night of training will be a matter of practicality for all involved. If you would like to coach but don’t have the necessary qualification, then the club can help you achieve those qualifications.

Assistant coaches require a WWCC but do not require the level 1 accreditation. If you want to get into coaching, this is a great way to start.

Skills coaches are people who will attend the odd training session, potentially across a number of the teams and assist with basic skill development. No qualification required and you attendance at all training sessions is not expected.

In 2016, the WJFNC has and emphasis on enjoyment and skills improvement. Coaches will work closely with the coaching panel and committee co-ordinated through the junior development officer or netball co-ordinator and the club will be provide support.

People of all backgrounds are encouraged to nominate as coaches. Your prior netball or football participation may not have exceeded watching Friday night football, but if you are keen and work well with kids, then coaching can be a rewarding experience.
