Football Queensland (FQ) have announced a strengthening of its support of coaches at all levels of the game with the launch of a range of new coach development initiatives in recent weeks.

The platform, entitled Coaching Knowledge Base, has been created by FQ’s Club Development Unit. The technical resources provided are designed to support both community and advanced club coaches and to address some of the challenges facing coaches across the state.

FQ’s knowledge sharing initiative in coach education and support is critical to the fostering of a positive coaching culture and the improvement of experiences of participants.

The Coaching Knowledge Base allows for easy access for all coaches and clubs to tailored content centred around Players, Training, Game Day and Administration, plus Development Webinars, Coach the Coach Interviews and Training Videos.

“It has been fantastic to see an increase in coaching registrations in 2021 with over 6,000 coaches currently registered across the state,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.

“Improving development opportunities while providing additional levels of support for coaches at every level of the game is a strategic focus of Football Queensland’s, not only for the benefit of the coaches themselves but also for participants, ensuring all coaches across the state are equipped to deliver enjoyable participation experiences.

“FQ is committed to supporting all registered coaches in their development, which is why we are excited to launch a host of new coach support initiatives including the new Coaching Knowledge Base webpage, Coach the Coach feature and monthly coaching newsletter.”

Gabor Ganczer, State Technical Director, expressed his excitement at the rollout and implementation of these initiatives.

“Created by Football Queensland’s Club Development Unit, the new Coaching Knowledge Base houses a suite of collateral for Queensland coaches including technical resources and training videos, development webinars, and Football Australia resources, and is also designed to improve clubs’ capacity to deliver a best practice youth development program,” he said.

“The new Coach the Coach segment launched by FQ in recent weeks will feature a Technical Director, Club Coach Coordinator and Coach Educator to provide an insight into the strategies and initiatives implemented at their club to support the professional development of their club coaches.

“The recently introduced coaching newsletter also provides registered coaches with regular updates on the latest initiatives and practices being implemented by FQ.

“The implementation of these new initiatives will not only support the thousands of coaches across Queensland, but will also assist clubs in creating a positive learning and development environment for coaches of all qualifications.”

New resources and content will be added to Coaching Knowledge Base on a monthly basis. It can be accessed by clicking here.
