COACH TRAINING DATES
It is a requirement from Nepean Association that all Division 1 teams have a coach with a minimum coaching qualification in community coaching for the age group they are coaching. In the past, teams without an accredited coach have forfeited all points won until they have an accredited coach.
Blaxland FC will reimburse the cost of the coaching course for those coaches that complete the course and provide a receipt of completion. This offer is also open to those coaches wishing to undertake a course for those teams that will not be playing in division 1.
It is also a requirement for all coaches in the U5 to U8s to have completed a Miniroo’s Coaching course (previously Grassroots). These are a free 3 hour course. Blaxland FC will be hosting a Miniroo's Coaching course on the 25th March at St Johns Oval. The link to register for this is below;
