COACHING AT MFC

The success of MFC is attributed, to a large degree, to the coaches and managers who volunteer their time to coach and manage at all ages, Junior and Senior. We need volunteer parents to coach and manage teams, especially in the miniroos ranks.

You don't have to be a qualified coach to participate. You don't need any experience, just a desire to help the players enjoy the sport and develop their ability.

Coach Education programs are designed to help entry level coaches through to intermediate and advanced. If you are interested in coaching your son's or daughter's team just let us know. Coaches for the miniroos teams are typically organised once the teams are formed and mustered.

OUR COACHING PRINCIPLES

At Moggill Football Club, we believe in providing a positive and friendly learning environment where players are challenged and are allowed to develop technically, tactically, physically and psychologically. Our goal is to not only educate players, but also to let the players have fun. We aim to provide an experience and an environment that promotes ongoing participation in football and a lifelong love for the game.

Let’s not forget that football is a game.

Our identity as a community based club is not only expressed by the way we play football, but also through our coaching methodology and the relationships we have with our players and their parents. All coaches at Moggill FC are volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to ensure our players are able to participate.

At Moggill FC , we don’t believe that a session or game full of instructions and orders from a coach has a positive effect on a player’s development, as they are being commanded rather than coached. Instead, we encourage players to facilitate and contribute to their own learning. This is achieved through the use of questions and answers during a session, and encouraging players to think for themselves and expedite their own learning process, as this is a form of guided discovery.

We want to give all our players the opportunity to be the best that they can be. We know that the development needs of young players change over time. Whilst our philosophy remains consistent across the club, its application is varied to suit a continuum of changing needs for the developing player. We refer to the FFA curriculum as the coaching standard for the club, which is followed by all age groups and coordinated by our Junior Director of Coaching.

We also run an Academy Programme for our Mini Roo age group players which assist with development and skills acquisition.

MFC are active in and encourage coach education through the FFA pathway beginning with the Grass roots Coaching course for all coaches.

More information about the FFA Curriculum (including training sessions) can be found in the Coach Development section below.

COACH DEVELOPMENT / COURSE CALENDAR

You don't have to be qualified to volunteer as a coach at MFC. Coach development is, however, important to us. Football Australia sets out a clear framework for Coach Education and we like to buy into this where we can, and link this to a whole-of-club playing style and philosophy. We focus mainly on the "Community" stream as this is appropriate for most of our coaches. The "Advanced" course stream is also offered for those operating in the Senior ranks and beyond. If you're interested in learning more about coaching, please get in touch.

Watch this space for a calendar of training events.

EOI 2021–2022

Coaching is a rewarding experience that gives you a chance to help your local community, as well as meet like-minded people.

Moggill FC operates a formal Expression of Interest process to allow individuals to lodge their desire to coach and/or manage Junior and Senior teams and the process for the 2022 season is hereby open.

All coaches need to provide their details, in order to be considered for coaching in 2022. If you have any queries get in touch with our Junior Director of Coaching at jdoc@moggillfc.org.au

We encourage all to respond no matter how tentative or certain you are of your desire to participate. In 2022 we are looking to restart our policy that all junior coaches will be put through the “Grass Roots” coaching course on the Community Pathway as a minimum, with some being offered the Skills Development course. If you’re keen on progressing along this coaching development pathway, certainly let us know.

The EOI will close on 1 January 2022 with appointments being confirmed prior to end January.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW AND LODGE YOUR INTEREST NOW TO COACH OR MANAGE IN 2022.
