Last Thursday NSFA Coaching Scholarship winner and Hornsby Heights Club Coaching Coordinator (CCC) Troy Sheather delivered an ALDI MiniRoos Certificate course at Montview Oval, as preparations for the new season continue to ramp up.
Troy is the first newly-appointed CCC to deliver a MiniRoos Certificate course this year, instructing 20 new coaches on the core principles of the national curriculum and the foundations of coaching young players.
“It was two hours of fun, relaxed learning and the feedback from attendees was excellent,” he said.
“We now have 20 new coaches who are looking forward to the season with a greater sense of preparedness and understanding of how they can do their role better.”
“This of course leads to a better learning environment for our players and the club as a whole so it’s a win-win for all.”
NSFA Community Football Manager Ed Ferguson was in attendance at Montview Oval to supervise and provide additional instruction to both the presenter and the participants.
“Troy delivered confidently and drew the progressions and answers out of the participants well,” he said.
“Together we allowed the course to flow and built onto each other well.”
“At the end of the day, all participants left with a heightened sense of confidence and understanding.”
“That is our aim, especially when we only have air time for 2 hours with them!”
Next Monday (March 26), NSFA is hosting a Community Coaching Expo at NTRA! Attendees also go into the draw to win an outdoor box for a Sydney FC home game next season. Click here for registration details.
