Coaching 2020: Can you help?

We have had numerous expressions of interest for coaching our teams in 2020. However, we need a lot more volunteers across all age groups. Coaches will be thoroughly supported next year with both resources and regular senior coach assistance.

Please note the following opportunities to learn more about our 2020 coaching program and our commitment to all of our coaches. Please come along even if you are unsure about being involved next year. 

  • Thursday 7th Nov, 6.30 - 8.00pm  - An information night for prospective coaches. I will share the draft coaching programs, handbooks and support materials for coaches in 2020, as well as explaining the support structures in place through the age-level coordinator role. 
  • Tuesday 19th / 26th Nov 6.30 - 8.00pm - Workshop: Structuring coaching sessions and basic skill development activities (MiniRoos, Junior and Youth). These workshops will be informative, relaxed and enjoyable. They will be designed especially for the beginner coach but even those with some experience will benefit. Bring your clipboard, notebook, suitable clothing, boots or joggers because you will be partly participating. I will also be coaching players from the junior program within the workshop.

Development Training - U10, 11

Players who will be playing in the U10 or 11 age groups in 2020 are invited to two training sessions on Tuesday 19th and 26th November from 6.30-8.00pm. Please email Nicci - info@pinehillsfootball.com by Wednesday 14th November if your child can attend.

Coaching at PHFC 2020

One of my first tasks as DOC has been to put into place processes, procedures and structure to support our coaching staff for 2020. This is well-advanced. In 2020 this will include:

    §  A website for resources for all coaches    

    §    The availability of age-appropriate programs, coaching plans, game day plans
    §  Workshops for coaches

    §   Regular age-level coordinator support

    §  Appropriate resources.

New to coaching

Are you interested in coaching at Pine Hills Football Club? You may have no prior knowledge of and skills in coaching, or you may have some limited experience. Regardless of your existing expertise I would welcome an opportunity to have you involved in some coaching capacity in 2020. If you are interested, please download and complete Expression of Interest form and return to Nicci – info@pinehillsfootball.com

Experienced coaches

Many of our parents have stepped into coaching this year or last, and may wish to further develop their knowledge and skills, and coach again next year to support their child/ren.  I encourage you to volunteer again, and to be part of our coaching staff for 2020. Please download and complete Expression of Interest form and return to Nicci – info@pinehillsfootball.com

Please note, the form is an expression of interest only. I will follow up with you in due course.

Further initiatives

Coaching Program Partnerships

At the moment I am exploring a range of partnerships to support our coaching and player development programs in 2020. Parent and coach information sessions, as well player interaction will be featured in those partnerships wherever possible. I am still working through this process with potential partners but at the moment discussions are well-advanced with the Leisure Centre, a local podiatrist, dietician, physiotherapist and hopefully sport psychologist.

By the beginning of October, I should be able to provide a more complete update on how these partnerships will serve us.

Coaching Program Focus Areas

While we want the Academy program to be strong again in 2020 and I look forward to supporting that goal, my personal emphasis will be in supporting all of the coaches and players in non-Academy areas.

I am very excited by the potential of so many players in our club, having seen many of them in the development sessions I have been running over the last 6 weeks. There is a lot of enthusiasm and potential across the club. Further detail in relation to this will be shared later this year.

I am also looking forward to helping as many coaches as possible to improve their skills, hence helping players under their direction to improve more quickly.

One activity I hope to instigate in November is the combining of an Introduction to Coaching workshop for new (or near new) coaches which will overlap two development squad sessions. In other words, I will coach coaches in some planning activities, drills, coaching points etc. while running training sessions with a couple of groups of players. More on this in mid-October.

All the best.
