FFA Community Coaching Courses to be held at Bates Drive

With season 2013 fast approaching now is a great time to gain formal coaching experience and accreditation via the FFA Community Coaching Pathway. SSFA are offering both the Youth and Senior Certificate/Licence Courses which are aimed at coaches of 12-15 year olds and 16 year plus respectively.

If you are coaching in these age groups you will find the information on these courses invaluable. The courses are largely practical in nature so you will get to experience first-hand some of the latest methods and techniques used in the FFA National Curriculum. You will also receive FFA recognised accreditation, free access to S2S – a great online coaching tool – and an opportunity to meet fellow coaches with similar objectives.

Much of the course is practical and most of the work is done in groups and the main role of the presenter is to ensure each candidate understands the course – we will help you to get your coaching qualification in a friendly inclusive environment.

Coaches associated with SSFA clubs will in most instances have this cost paid on their behalf – check with your club. If you are not subsidised by your club you will need to pay either in person or over the phone prior to or on the first day of the course. Contact SSFA Office on 9542-3577 for further information.
