Building on the success of Football Queensland (FQ)’s Club Development Unit established in 2020, a host of new development opportunities will be provided by FQ to advanced clubs this year.
“Football Queensland is proud to deliver 18 new learning opportunities by providing an increased level of support to clubs, coaches and technical staff who undertook the club assessment process in 2020,” FQ State Technical Director Gabor Ganczer said.
“Our Club Development Unit will deliver a series of workshops, webinars and best practice seminars for participating clubs throughout 2021, and FQ have identified six main focus areas based on analysis undertaken following the club assessment process.”
“Workshops will be delivered to advanced coaches by Football Queensland and Football Australia instructors, some of which will provide Continued Professional Development (CPD) points for participating coaches, while a series of webinars will feature both FQ and external presenters,” FQ Club Development Ambassador – Head of Coaching Davide Bertamini said.
“We’re also excited about the introduction of shared best practice seminars which will be delivered by clubs who have been identified through their club assessment as providing a ‘best practice’ approach to a specific technical area.
“These sessions will be delivered in addition to the ongoing club visits, club-specific workshops and meetings between FQ’s Club Development Ambassadors and club Technical Directors which will be held throughout the year.
“Clubs will be invited to attend sessions based on the action plan they’ve developed in partnership with FQ which identifies strengths and areas for improvement, to ensure they are benefiting from access to the most appropriate development opportunities.”
“FQ’s Club Development Ambassadors will continue to focus on developing the technical capacity and standard of clubs to ensure all participants are benefiting from high-quality participation experiences as outlined in FQ’s Strategic Plan,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“I’m confident that these clubs will benefit from the additional level of support, and I look forward to seeing the continual development of coaching and technical staff across the game.”
