NNSWF host first all-female advanced coaching course

December 6th, 2021

A dedicated group of 11 coaches took part in Northern NSW Football’s first all-female coaching course over the weekend.

The course was the first two days of the Football Australia ‘C’ Licence Course, with seven of the participants recipients of NNSWF’s C-Licence Scholarship for Women program.

The course, for coaches 18-years and over, gave candidates an understanding of the National Curriculum and Football Australia’s vision and philosophy.

NNSWF Advanced Coach Educator Cas Wright presented over the two days, with Newcastle Jets A-League Women’s coach Ash Wilson a special guest on Sunday.

NNSWF Female Participation and Inclusion Officer Annelise Rosnell said the member federation was committed to ensuring the number of accredited female coaches was increased.

“We have significantly fewer women coaching than we do men. Two of the major barriers we’ve identified is a lack in confidence to become a coach and the need to create more female coaching mentors,” Rosnell said.

“It is important as the member federation that we continue to invest in this area and do not underestimate the impact that female coaches have in our clubs.

“It is about working with each individual to ensure they build the skills to become a confident coach in their environment.”

The final four days of the course will be held on 29 and 30 January and 26 and 27 February 2022.
