Information for Coaches: 


As part of our push for professionalism and expertise in the game, Blackheath FC have implemented an informal coach training program in 2013. All coaches will be loaned a Law Book this year so that they can study the laws of the game as it relates to the age group they are coaching. There will be a short examination to confirm their understanding of the laws before the season commences. As in previous years, all coaches will be required to hold a Grassroots Coaching Certificate. This can be completed online at: http://www.ausport.gov.au/participating/coaches/education/onlinecoach 


We know you will support this initiative to make our club the best in the Association!


If you are interested in coaching please contact Mark Linsley on 0426 236 160.

Coaching Co-ordinator's Message

Hello to all the prospective Coaches out there! The enthusiasm shown by the members so far this season has been phenomenal! Positions are filling quicker than expected, so if you're interested in helping out the kids as a Coach, Manager or Assistant give me a call!

As a Coach at the club for the last two seasons, where my kids have played for 5 years, I really want to concentrate on building from the base up. This means giving the Coaches the tools and knowledge to ensure the players are learning the correct techniques and making their soccer experience more enjoyable.

There is a link for an online Grass Roots Coaching Course on this page which is free and compulsory for all Coaches. I encourage anyone interested to log on and have a look. I found that even as a parent this course helped me understand more about the dynamics of what goes on for a Coach.

I am also organising some face to face courses for the Coaches. Stand by for further details on Grass Roots, Junior Licence and Youth Certificate 1 courses.

Managers are also required for all grades so c'mon! Parents! Brothers! Sisters! Uncles! Aunts! Grandparents! Let's get involved!
