New coaches come online with Grassroots Certificate

FFT, the Migrant Resource Centre and Woodbridge Community Football Program have combined to assist new coaches



Football Federation Tasmania has successfully trained a group of migrant footballers to achieve the Grassroots Coaching Certificate.

Working together with the Migrant Resource Centre's Tendeker Dos Santos and Woodbridge Community Football Program’s Jon Price, thirteen coaches now have their entry level coaching badges. The courses were run by Anthony Alexander at the green Cornelian Bay fields this week.  

Tendeker and Jon have supported the participants in the Grassroots Certificate, assisting FFT's Game Development department over the last few weeks. A number of the migrant coaches will probably pursue further coach education with FFA over the coming years. They will also act as role models in the migrant communities to encourage more coaches to pursue FFA coach education and assist migrants to assimilate in the Australian community through the international language of football.

FFT congratulates the new coaches and wishes them all the best as we build towards the 2013 season - and thanks the Migrant Resource Centre and Woodbridge SC for their tremendous efforts.
