Coaches and Managers

Every team requires a coach and a manager. Teams are responsible for filling these positions and advising the registrar (Parents usually fill these roles in the Mini and Junior divisions). Considerable training and support is on offer for our coaches so even individuals with no prior knowledge or experience are encouraged to volunteer to fill this extremely rewarding role.

Managers are also provided with easy to use instruction manuals and excellent support from Co-ordinators, so you have nothing to fear when stepping up to play your part in yours or your child’s football team.
