If you have any questions please contact our Coaching Co-ordinator Allison Clarke 0412 293 873

The club has opportunities for coaching in age groups ranging from Under 7 to 16. Even if you do not feel ready to coach a team, many of our coaches would love to have an assistant coach.

Together with an appropriate coaching course this is a great way to learn the ropes and prepare for coaching next season.

HJSC is committed to provide the best training/coaching possible for our children, that means we need the best trained coaches we can find. Because we all need to start somewhere, the club is sponsoring training for all of the coaches at HJSC. As long as you are a registered coach with HJSC and the Football Federation Australia (FFA) the club will pick up your fees for training.

Registering with the FFA is the first step to start training with the FFA/FFV (Football Federation Victoria) and also means lower costs for training.

To sign up for a coaching course, first register as a coach:

Make sure you register as a HJSC coach, and remember to write down your new FFA number.

Second, register for the course you need from the list of dates: FFV Courses

  • 3 hour FREE course for those coaching MiniRoos

Skill Training Certificate - for coaching up to under 13

Allison will also have a number of sessions (Coach the Coaches) throughout the year so that we can all learn from some of the more experienced coaches in the club.
