The past few weekends have seen more than 100 coaches undertaking coach education and development opportunities in preparation for the 2018 junior season. Last Saturday morning alone saw 40 coaches from Central Region teams complete the ALDI MiniRoos Certificate at a sunny Margate Oval, with another 16 coaches taking part in an Introduction to Skill Training in the afternoon.This follows on from a number of ALDI MiniRoos, Skill Training and Game Training Certificate courses at various venues in Hobart and Launceston throughout March and April.
There are still a few more opportunities for coaches to get skilled up as the season commences, with upcoming events at:

The Introduction to Skill Training is not a formally recognised course, but an introduction to the Skill Acquisition phase and the model sessions, ideal for coaches of players aged 10-12 who are wanting ideas to move on from the more basic MiniRoos activities, but not able to commit to the full 2-day Skill Training Certificate.
