  • Albury Coaching Conference

    The Football Coaches Conference for the Riverina is fast approaching and to date there are very few enrollments.

    Many of us have been pushing for events such as this being decentralised from Sydney with a greater focus on Country football.

    For those detractors, this is a perfect opportunity to show your support of Country football’s development.

    Many coaches have let their development slip and this is the perfect opportunity to update your qualifications with valuable accreditation points and a chance to view the latest methodologies in coaching. The new FFA National Curriculum is also strongly focused during the event.

    With the season fast approaching, coaches will see the latest practices, including periodisation, fitness for football and game related activities.


    In addition, there is an A League match on in Albury on that weekend. Melbourne Heart Vs Perth Glory, the conference is timed to make this available for coaches to attend.
