Resources for coaches and managers

Thanks for your involvement as a Coach or Manager. Your contribution is a critical part of providing the opportunity for our community to play this wonderful game.

All those volunteering must be registered through PlayFootball, and those volunteering with non-adult teams must have a current Working With Children Check.

Coach Accreditation

All HPW Coaches need to be accredited to coach. On completion, course fees are reimbursed.

Managers

On behalf of the Committee, we would like to thank you for volunteering to manage a team with the Hurlo Community.

As a Manager, you are guided by our Code of Conduct, and your primary role is to promote a safe and friendly environment for all players under your care.

We appreciate that at times, people get carried away with the emotion of football, and as such we ask our Coaches and Managers to work together to ensure that they are always exhibiting the correct behaviour.

Hurlstone Park Wanderers is a community club that promotes playing football in an inclusive manner, with respect for opponents, officials, and for the love of the game.

We have a kick-off meeting before the competition starts each year, for new and returning Managers to come along and ask questions and receive information to help them have a great year.

Coaches

Our coaching philosophy follows the FFA curriculum, which promotes coaching as inclusive, where the Coach and the player each have a role to play, where the player is safe to make their own decisions, to find their own path to the acquired outcome.

As an HPW Coach, you are guided by our Code of Conduct, and are required to complete an FFA community course that is relevant to your age group (Grassroots for U6-8, Skills Training for U8-11, Game Training for U12+, Seniors Course for U18+) so that Coaches can attain the base knowledge and philosophy that our coaching system is based on.

First and foremost, your coaching sessions need to be fun for the players, and fun for the Coach.

The Club provides training session plans each week, which are modelled off the Skills Sessions run for players on a Monday night of that week.

Coaches are encouraged to attend the Skills Sessions that are run by our Technical Director, Steve Tzanakes and his team.
