Coaching at Villa FC
Coaching a soccer team is very rewarding and is a great opportunity to provide a wonderful service to our community!
Each year we ask for volunteers to coach our various teams. We have over 50 teams so we need all the help we can get.
You do not need to have any experience to coach. Coaches receive a comprehensive manual explaining everything you need to know. Also, Villa FC supports its coaches with various resources and guidance if required.
We also encourage all coaches to become qualified for the grade they are coaching by going on the appropriate course. The courses do not take too much time and will greatly improve your effectiveness as a coach.
The cost of these courses is subsidised by the club. We try to let coaches know about upcoming courses but you might also want to keep an eye on the FFA website which lists upcoming courses (see here).
Football Australia has developed a very good National Curriculum which our club follows and which we ask all coaches to follow. This document can be downloaded as a pdf to your computer or phone. It not only gives a good understanding of concepts but also practical coaching sessions and exercises. You can see it here.
For anyone interested in coaching please let us know by sending us a message below.
For competitive grades you will also need to fill out an 'Expression of Interest' form and give to a committee member or email to . You can download this form here.
Thanks for taking an interest in coaching here with us at Villa FC!
