New Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) Technical Director Clayton Zane has today announced a FREE Newcastle Permanent Masterclass Tour throughout the regional zones in Lismore, Coffs Harbour, Taree and Tamworth.
Clayton recently just finished in his role as Assistant Coach with Newcastle Jets – a role he began in 2015 – and registered 14 caps and six goals for Australia as well as experience playing in Europe for major clubs Molde, Lillestrom and Anderlecht.
The Masterclass Tour is a unique opportunity for registered and accredited coaches from North Coast, Mid North Coast, Far North Coast and the Northern Inland to observe a coaching and tactical session as well as meet and learn from the region’s new TD.
The tour will be focused on designer games for sessions with limited space with a special course for North Coast Football coaches directed at effective possession and how to play out from the back.
Clayton said he was looking forward to delivering the Masterclass Tour and connecting with local coaches from across the region.
“The Newcastle Permanent Masterclass sessions are a valuable tool to assist with youth and senior level coaches development,” Clayton said.
“The aim of these masterclass sessions is to address a major challenge, namely a ‘lack of space’ in the team environment. Sessions will focus on how a drill can be designed that allows the coach to work on a topic in line with their principles of play without the need for a large training space.
“Following the session, coaches will be able to discuss the challenges they face with myself in person, such as lack of space in training.”
