Gunnedah & District Soccer Association host Skills Training Certificate

May 19th, 2021

Gunnedah & District Soccer Association hosted a Skills Training Certificate coaching course on Sunday 16 May. Jarrad Denham – Northern NSW Football Coach Development Officer presented the course to 8 participants who coach teams in the Skills Acquisition age groups – 9s, 10s, 11s & 12s.

In the Skill Acquisition Phase, the coach must focus on building a solid foundation of technical skill.  The course is fully practical and deals with the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills: First Touch, Striking the Ball, Running with the Ball and 1 v 1.

The cost of the course for all participants was covered by the Volunteers Grant received by Northern NSW Football – Northern Inland in 2020. So far this season Jarrad has presented two courses to coaches in the Northern Inland and upskilled the knowledge of 18 community coaches who coach teams in the Skills Acquisition Phase.

If your club is interested in hosting either a Skills Training Certificate (9-12yrs) or a Game Training Certificate (13-18yrs) please contact Toby McVey – Northern Inland Regional Coordinator. Participants may still be eligible to have costs covered by the Volunteer Grant.
