100 register for coaching seminar
REGISTRATIONS for the four-day coaching seminar in Lismore starting on Friday continue to come in from far and wide, according to Football FNC general manager Steve Mackney.
The seminar will feature the national and assistant national technical directors from Football Australia as well as a technical director from FC Barcelona Escola.
More than 100 registrations have been received , mainly from interstate and Sydney.
“The recognition from astute football coaches of how unique this opportunity is to have both Han Berger and Alistair Edwards so readily available and for a totally free seminar has ensured a big attendance,” Mackney said last night.
“We urge local coaches to register and anyone from other sports who may want to take advantage of these highly skilled coaching technicians giving theoretical and practical advice about their craft.
“The course is designed specifically for coaches and while all players and children are welcome to attend, the course is not structured for players to participate in the same way they would at, for example, a holiday coaching clinic, where everyone gets involved.”
Some of the region’s best junior representative players have been invited to assist with demonstrating the practical coaching instruction given over the four days.
The course is being held at the Lismore Workers Sports Club in Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah, and the adjacent Hepburn Park and the synthetic hockey field.
Mackney said that even though Football FNC was hiring the hockey facility, it wanted to acknowledge the co-operation of FNC Hockey.
Registrations for the seminar can be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
