I meant more that its not something people have to give their lives up for, and with a bit of co-ordination could be spread around a group. It just needs someone to get it started.
All the good coaches are coaching teams and don't have time to teach other coaches how to coach in their own style.
If we all coached the same way it would be pretty boring. The current division I coach in most teams play a kick & chase game. 2 Forwards, no midfield & 8 defenders.
They go for the draw, deadset it is boring. I give the opposition a chance to win if they are good enough, & 4 times this season they have been.
But I don't have the time to learn how to teach coaches when I am preparing a team to play. A lot of others who love football are the same.
There is no one I know that has the ability to teach the coaches & this should be turned back to FNSW for a fully paid & accredited coach to organize.
Almost all the C&DMs on that list coach teams. I coach 2 teams, work a few development programs and instruct. Almost every qualified instructor I know coaches at least 1 team and in some cases, multiple teams. Its not east, but it certainly isn't impossible, and there are plenty out there who do it
There is even at least one very good instructor coaching a team in Granville PL, who also coaches a school team and has a day job, doesn't stop him getting out and teaching others.
Either no one is interested in becoming a coach & upgrading their qualifications or the instructors just aren't available
are true. It would be beyond belief that Granville happens to be some kind of grey zone where no one is interested in improving their coaching qualifications, while every other district does not have that issue. I know they do, its why Granville people end up at courses in all the neighbouring districts (we always get a couple on KDSA courses, and we aren't even really neighbours). Clubs want their people to get them, otherwise why would some of them have thrown their hands up and ended up organising courses themselves this year. If clubs can organise a course and find an instructor, why can't the association?
And the instructors are available. Obviously not 24/7, but I konw of at least 4 qualified instructors living in GDSFA boundaries (I'm one). And there are plenty of instructors around Sydney who travel to run courses, its the nature of the game.
Its just that someone needs to lump in and start organising it. I actually volunteered to run courses and help with this on two occasions 2 and 3 years ago, but it just never got going. I know of at least 1 other who has done the same thing, again didn't really get going. And thats fine, I found plenty of other things to do, and so do others. But the long term now (Granville's entry on that page has looked like that for several years now) is I think detrimental to the members of the association..... every other association manages to find someone, or even just has an admin person who is able to put in paperwork and email about courses, and a list of instructors from around sydney to work through to find someone to run it for them (or just ask FNSW to find someone). Its sad that Granville seems to continue to struggle to be able to provide this when everyone else does.
