Coaching Team Keeps Growing

Posted on 3 August, 2020 at 9:55

Since we started our program we have worked hard not just to recruit players, purchase specialist training equipment and improve our facilities. We have worked hard to expand our coaching staff and improve their knowledge, confidence and experience to ensure we are able to provide the best possible teaching, development and support our players need.


Over the past few years Coaches Lee, Marc, Ian, Dee and Matt have done a fantastic job and in addition we have welcomed BAFCA Level 1 qualified Coaches Bill, Tom and Josh.


In support we have begun a program of developing new coaches, giving them the skills and experience needed to gain their qualifications through our Coaching association and other recognised and affiliated organisations. At present we have Coach Stuart, Simon A and Nathan all waiting for their chance to gain their certification once Covid is resolved. These coaches are vital in helping us deliver our training sessions and have all shown fantastic development and work fantastically within their teams.


As we look to the future we will work with BAFCA to deliver coaching development for Flag and Kitted coaches as well as supporting the new coaching pathways they are introducing for older players to further support our program both now and in the future.


We are hugely grateful for all our Coaches both past and present for helping us to build our program.


We are delighted to announce that in addition to our current Coaching staff we will be welcoming Coach Simon Mac to our organisation. As a former Head Coach of a local adult team as well as an extensive playing and coaching career Coach Simon will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that will not only help our players but support our Coaching development program. We are delighted that he has shown such faith in our plans and ideas that he has chosen to join us at this time.
