Coaches & Managers – The Force wants you

NOMINATIONS are now open for coaches and managers wishing to be involved in the North Coast Force Junior representative program for 2024.

The focus of the Force rep program will be on the development of the individual players, rather than team performance.

This year the junior representative teams will be playing in the Northern NSW Championships to be held at Coffs Harbour from Wednesday 17 July to Friday 19 July.

Age groups for both boys and girls will be Under 13 (born 2011 and 2012), Under 15 (born 2009 and 2010), and Under 17 (born 2007 and 2008).

Each team will have a Coach and at least one Assistant Coach appointed, with all coaches required to hold a minimum of a current Foundation coaching accreditation.

Each team will also have a Manager who should have experience in a similar role and will ideally hold a current First Aid accreditation (or similar).

Being a part of the Force program is a great opportunity for local coaches to build their knowledge and skill set for the benefit of all teams they coach. Force coaches will have access to professional development opportunities, guidance, and technical advice from Sydney Swans Academy personnel.

Prospective coaches and managers will need to be able to commit to the open selection trials for the 2024 program on Sunday 7 April and Sunday 14 April at Richardson Park as well as the pre-Championship training sessions (Wednesdays) commencing on May 15.
