Council have, as a direct result of the recent wet weather and the state of the fields, advised that they would prefer that we do not play football this weekend (25 & 26 March) and that we commence our competitions on the weekend of 1 and 2 April.

  3. Regrading requests/ decisions will now be moved back at least one week (still dependent upon subsequent rounds being played)
  4. All matches scheduled for this Friday night (24 March) are cancelled and will be rescheduled to 7 April (or moved to 9 April)
  5. Semi Finals, Finals and Grand Finals will all be pushed back one week

FFA COMMUNITY COACHING COURSES TO BE HELD AT BATES DRIVE – MAR, APR & MAY

With season 2017 ready to start now is a great time to prepare for the season and gain formal coaching accreditation and experience via the FFA Community Coaching Pathway.

SSFA are offering the Skills Training and Game Training Coaching Certificate Courses which are aimed at coaches of 9-13 year olds and 13-17 year olds respectively.

If you are coaching in these age groups you will find the information on these courses invaluable. The courses are largely practical in nature so you will get to experience first-hand some of the latest methods and techniques used in the FFA National Curriculum. You will also receive FFA accreditation and an opportunity to meet fellow coaches with similar objectives.

When, where and how much is the course held and how long does it go for?

Skills Training Certificate (12 hours – i.e. 4 x 3 hour sessions) 6pm-9pm Cost: $90 – Presenter: Dragan Blazevic/Jonathan Dmoch/Jon Long………….. Aimed at Coaches of 9-13 year old players.

Game Training Certificate (12 hours – i.e. 4 x 3 hour sessions) 6pm-9pm Cost: $90 – Presenter: Dragan Blazevic/ Jonathan Dmoch/Jon Long…………… Aimed at Coaches of players 13-17 years.

Game Training Course on Wednesday/Friday April 26, 28 & May 3, 5th 2017.

Where:        Harrie Dening Football Centre, Bates Drive Kareela (off Princes Hwy).

Much of these courses are practical and most of the work is done in groups and the main role of the presenter is to ensure each candidate understands the course – we will help you to get your coaching qualification in a friendly inclusive environment.

Coaches associated with SSFA clubs may have the cost subsidized by their respective club – check with your club.
