Aspiring football coaches from across North Queensland will have the opportunity to participate in C Licence courses in Mackay, Townsville and Cairns in 2022.
Kicking off in Townsville on Friday, 25 February, the courses will be hosted across three regions in FQ Whitsunday Coast, FQ Northern and FQ Far North & Gulf.
Football Queensland State Technical Director Gabor Ganczer said the courses are a tremendous opportunity for local coaches to earn recognised qualifications.
“After delivering a record number of advanced coaching courses in 2021, Football Queensland is committed to increasing coach education opportunities throughout the State,” said Ganczer.
“The upcoming C Licence courses will be hosted at Endeavour Park in Cairns, 1300SMILES Active Park in Townsville and the Mackay Football Park on the Whitsunday Coast.
“The courses will be delivered by Michael Edwards, Football Queensland’s Senior Manager Technical – Northern Club Development, Talent and Coaching.
“Michael will be joined by Darren Thomas, FQ’s new Club Development Ambassador in the Whitsunday Coast, as well as Craig Perfect in Townsville and Reggie Davani in Cairns.
“Michael is a Football Australia/AFC Pro Licence coach who has been based in Townsville for 12 months, working alongside North Queenslanders to lift technical standards across the region.
“FQ’s commitment to coach education will have a positive effect on clubs and players in North Queensland. Better coaches help foster better players and a higher standard of football.
“Our entire Coach Education and Development team led by FQ’s Lead Club Development Ambassador of Coaching Davide Bertamini look forward to educating coaches across the State in 2022.”
