2024 – Introduction to Junior Coaching course

For all new Fun Football Coaches

What we have previously known as the Introduction to Junior Coaching has been renamed by NZF to “Fun-damentals of Junior Coaching“. This course is targeted for Fun Football Coaches (First Kicks, U7 and U8 grades). If you are coaching in other grades and have not completed this course then you will still find it valuable as a foundation before moving to higher coaching awards. Onslow Junior Football Club expects all of its Coaches to have completed this course once and are offering an opportunity to complete the practical component “in-house”.

This is an informative course facilitated by Capital Football, aiming to enable Coaches with skills to organise a safe and fun football session that players will not only enjoy, but learn from too. This practical course runs in conjunction with an online component.

Content covered:

  • The role of the game leader / coach
  • Introduction to football games and activities
  • Meeting the needs of junior footballers
  • Learner resources
  • Coaching plans
  • Learning the rules of the game

If you have signed up to Coach this season, or just thinking about it, then you will need to complete this course.
