Belnorth FC Coach the Coaches Initiative

Belnorth FC have made it a priority to improve the resources and training available to our coaches in 2019 and beyond.

Belnorth have budgeted to refund our volunteer coaches the cost of these courses upon completion and coaching one of our teams this year (Belnorth teams).

We hope to run the Aldi MiniRoos certificate later this season (possibly August) in preparation for further courses.

For coaches training 5-9 year old players

The 3 hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN.

The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football.

No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game.

Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.

Course length: 3 hours

Cost: Free (subsidised by Capital Football and FFA)


For coaches training 9-13 year old players

In the Skill Acquisition Phase the coach MUST focus on building a solid foundation of Technical Skill.

The course is conducted over 14 hours, is fully practical and deals with the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills:

  • First Touch
  • Striking the Ball
  • Running with the Ball
  • 1 v 1

These four Core Skills make up 95% of the actions of any outfield player during a game of football which is why it is critical to train these actions repeatedly so that the players have the opportunity to develop their ability to perform them more effectively during a game.

Course length: 14 hours

Cost: $125


For coaches training 13-17 year old players

In the Game Training Phase the coach’s aim will be the development of tactical awareness, perception and decision making through a game related approach to training.

The course is conducted over 14 hours, is fully practical and provides the coach with training sessions designed to help the players apply the Functional Game Skills in a team setting using the FFA endorsed ‘1-4-3-3’ (91 cm)˜ formation.

Course length: 14 hours

Cost: $125
