Greenwich Sports Club prides itself on providing excellent football coaching to all members. Our junior teams are typically coached by parent volunteers and our men’s and women’s teams are fortunate to have a roster of coaches available. All coaches are supported by the club’s volunteer Director of Coaching and our paid professional Head Coach. Many coaches have achieved various levels of licensing with the NSFA.
Certified/licensed coaches have access to materials provided by the FFA that can greatly assist with running training programs. Greenwich will reimburse parents who wish to attend coaching certification/license courses with the NSFA. Coaching course dates are typically posted on our calendar or you may visit the NSFA website. Please contact our Director of Coaching for more information.
The NSFA provides rules, regulations and manuals that contain useful information about the various competitions. All coaches should be familiar with the applicable resources for their competition. Click here to go to the NSFA website.
A summary of the MiniRoos playing rules and formats can be found by clicking here.
The Club is pleased to provide more coaching materials to assist coaches, managers and players via our new web site. This should enable coaches and managers to get more out of the season through greater coaching resources and structures to follow.
REMEMBER, your Club has also employed the services of a part-time professional coach who is available to help you to improve your coaching skills and also enable your players and team to learn more and enjoy their football. If you are seeking assistance from Gerry, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org naming your team, training night and time.
