The Football Federation of Tasmania (FFT), the governing body of soccer in Tasmania, will be running two free Grassroots Coaching Courses at Olinda Grove, Mt Nelson during March. These provide entry level qualifications for coaches of junior soccer teams in Tasmania (NB there are more advanced coaching certificates available to those who are interested)
Forestry Tasmania are running an event in the afternoon of the Season Launch on Wednesday 9th of March 2011. They will conduct a number of different activities to entertain school children in their offices at 79 Melville Street between 3.30- 5.30 pm.
WSC will nominate junior and youth teams based on the number of players registered for each age-group by Thursday 10th March. Since we will not be permitted to add further teams after this date, interested players are urged to come along and register at training on Thursday 3rd or Thursday10th March so that appropriate teams can be nominated.
Coaches and team managers:
Each team nominated will need a coach and team manager (or parent helper) to organise and supervise their child's team. No previous involvement with soccer is required in order to undertake these roles, as the emphasis in junior football is on participation and enjoyment, not on winning or losing. Free introductory coaching courses are run by the Football Federation of Tasmania prior to the start of the season, with higher level formal coaching qualifications also available to those who are interested.
As you know our club is run by volunteers and these last positions - coaches and team managers - are vitally important to the club's ability to provide this social and sporting outlet for the youngsters in our area. So please consider getting involved, help support the young people in our community.
