Coach Education

In order to identify the most effective methods to develop coaches, New Zealand Football has reviewed research relating to coach education across the world. Based on this research NZF has designed the Coach Education Pathway to present a structured and progressive education programme, founded on the following principles:

  • Applicable and Practical
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Flexible
  • Player Centred
  • Appropriate for New Zealand environment
  • Linked to NZF Playing Style

Coaches at the community level are the backbone of the coaching family and crucial to increasing participation and laying the foundation in developing the basic skills and intrinsic motivation that players need to have a lifelong passion for football. The Community Pathway provides the volunteer coach, who may have varying levels of football knowledge or experience, with learning to ensure that they engage the players in a highly stimulating way. Coaches can access the courses without the need for assessment or accreditation in a range of methods to suit the needs of the players.

The Junior & Youth Level 1 & 2 courses are non-assessed, good fun and give you tools to assist your sessions and match days.

Below is the 2022 CTFC Coaching Calendar for coaches within our club, no matter what level, to attend a coaching course and help our players to maximise their potential. 

If you have any further questions about coaching please contact our Director of Football, Garbhan Coughlan at garbhanc@ctfc.nz.
