Free coach­ing clinic for Grafton

The Daily Examiner - - SPORT -

NORTH­ERN NSW Foot­ball (NNSWF) Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor Michael Browne will be in Grafton next Tues­day, April 24, to con­duct a free com­mu­nity foot­ball coach­ing mas­ter class, with foot­ball coaches from across the North Coast.

With more than 20 years’ pro­fes­sional coach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, Michael’s coach­ing cre­den­tials span across the world from Charl­ton FC in Lon­don to As­pire Academy in Qatar.

NNSWF Com­mu­nity Foot­ball man­ager Peter Haynes said it was im­por­tant to ex­tend these op­por­tu­ni­ties to com­mu­nity foot­ball clubs in re­gional ar­eas.

“Of­ten coaches and play­ers of com­mu­nity foot­ball don’t have the time and re­sources to travel to metropoli­tan ar­eas to ob­serve new coach­ing tech­niques,” Haynes said.

“By bring­ing pro­grams such as this to the re­gional zones, it en­ables the game to grow and as­sists com­mu­nity coaches to ob­serve some of the new prac­tices be­ing used through­out pro­fes­sional clubs.”

New­cas­tle Per­ma­nent’s Grafton branch man­ager Erica Farag said it was a plea­sure to col­lab­o­rate with NNSWF, North Coast Foot­ball and Grafton Foot­ball Club to bring Michael to the North Coast.

“Pro­vid­ing this op­por­tu­nity to lo­cal com­mu­nity foot­ball coaches from Coffs Har­bour and Grafton is a great way to sup­port our lo­cal North Coast com­mu­nity,” said Farag.

The ses­sion is aimed at coaches of se­nior grades (15+) and will fo­cus on how to cre­ate and con­vert goal scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The free New­cas­tle Per­ma­nent Com­mu­nity Foot­ball Mas­ter Class is open to all reg­is­tered and ac­cred­ited North Coast Foot­ball coaches.
