The 2023 Football NSW Coaching Conference details have been confirmed ahead of the two-day event taking place this weekend (November 11 & 12) at Valentine Sports Park.
Hosted by well-known football personality Stephanie Brantz, the Conference will include a wide array of special guests both domestically and internationally, (as per below), all delivering presentations that pass on their experiences and advice for all levels of the game.
Coaches will be able to tailor their learning based on their area of expertise, such as;
- Player Development
- Women’s Football
- Strength & Conditioning
Football NSW Coach Development Manager Christopher Adams is an instrumental part in organising the Conference, sharing his thoughts with Soccerscene ahead of a jam-packed schedule.
“After a COVID hiatus, we’re back to having a face-to-face Coaching Conference which is fantastic,” he said.
“We’re really excited to be welcoming over 600 attendees across the weekend to Valentine Sports Park.
“We’ve got coaches from all levels of the game from community football to Pro Diploma coaches across NSW clubs.
“They’ll be treated to theory and practical sessions that will suit their interest and offers them the chance to choose their own journey throughout the conference with a mixture of keynote sessions and breakout groups.”
With up to 50 CPD Points across the two-day for coaches, there will be plenty of incentive to get involved.
“We hope that coaches can leave the event inspired and eager to develop themselves into the best coach that they can be,” Adams said.
“The conference’s theory and practical sessions will discuss key coaching trends across Australia and the world, while there’s also leadership, management and tactical understanding to cover all bases for a coach in the game.
“In addition, we also look at women’s football, goalkeeping and futsal to deliver all experiences for a coach.”
Full attendance at each day earns participants 25 points per day towards FA/AFC licence reaccreditation as per the AFC Coaching Convention.
