FFT will be running a Skill Training Certificate course hosted by Kingborough Lions at Lightwood Park on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December 2017. Suitable for all coaches working with players aged 9-13, this will be a great opportunity in particular for any senior players in clubs who are looking to coach junior/youth teams or in Skill Acquisition Phase programs next year. Other courses will be scheduled in early 2018, but as they often clash with pre-season practice games or Summer Cup at that time of year, this is likely to be the most convenient opportunity for many coaches who also have their own playing commitments.
The course is fully practical and deals with the development of the four Functional Game Skills: First Touch, Striking the Ball, Running with the Ball and 1v1. Candidates must ensure that they are available for the whole course, which runs from 9am to 4pm both days, and wear suitable attire for participation in activities. Candidates should bring their own food, drink and a notepad.
Course cost is $100. Payment must be received by Football Federation Tasmania before registration for the candidate’s registration is confirmed. The preferred payment method is by direct deposit to:
- Bank: Commonwealth Bank
- BSB: 067-101
- Account No: 1007 7216
- Account Name: Football Federation Tasmania
- Please include your initial and surname as Bank Reference eg ASmith
