Welcome to the Coaches Corner, with information for team coaches

There is nothing better than watching our young players learn to play our fantastic game.

The role is a daunting one so at the Coaches Corner we aim to provide you with the resources to make it a worthwhile experience that will allow you and your team to have a great season.

Football Federation Australia Coaching Resources

The FFA has put together a website that provides structured resources based around the coaching curriculum that takes players and coaches through the development phases, from ‘Discovery’ through ‘Skill Acquisition’ to ‘Game Training, and finally the ‘Performance Phase’. The website sets out suggested training session plans that take you through a season.

National Playing Rules and Formats U5 – U11

The following document outlines the rules and playing formats for each age group from Under 6 to Under 11. Please download this document and understand the rules for your relevant age group. The Under 5 coaches should encourage each of the players to understand the rules and have a go at being a Game Leader during the season.

Skills Hub

Football Federation Australia, in collaboration with our Member Federations, has launched the official Skills Hub as another component of the #PlayAtHomeChallenge. The Skills Hub allows you to stay connected with the Football community whilst ensuring both your physical and mental well-being stay strong.
