Football Queensland (FQ)’s commitment to improving coach development opportunities and strengthening participation experiences in schools will be strategically aligned through a two-part B Licence course at Meakin Park next month.
Davide Bertamini, FQ’s Lead Club Development Ambassador – Coaching, supported by Football Federation Australia (FFA) coach developers, will deliver the advanced course for more than 20 male and female coaches involved in the QLD Schools Premier League (SPL) system, which encompasses 13 schools and more than 1,500 students.
“Football Queensland is constantly looking to improve the experience wherever football is played and that extends to building capacity in schools,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“Strengthening coach education supports this overall strategic objective and Football Queensland is pleased to engage with the QLD Schools Premier League to deliver another high-quality development opportunity.”
Part 1 of the B Licence course, which is already fully booked, runs from 19 to 24 October, with Part 2 to follow from 7 to 12 December.
QLD SPL Co-Chair Sean Curtis said: “The QLD Schools Premier League is enhancing its focus on coach development and part of this approach includes working in collaboration with Football Federation Australia and Football Queensland to deliver SPL members access to advanced coach education opportunities.
“Advancing these coaches to the next level, the B Licence, will ensure they meet the requirements and standards that the Schools Premier League competition requires and are providing the best possible football environment for our players.”
All available advanced and community coaching courses can be found through the Coaching Courses page on the FQ website.
