Advanced Coaching Courses


These courses are designed to educate coaches how to organise and conduct coaching practices under the FFA National Curriculum. Advanced Courses are aimed at coaches currently coaching at elite level or perspective coaches who would be interested in pursuing coaching at an elite level. This could range from the Open age National Teams (Socceroos, Matildas), Under age National Teams (Young Socceroos, Young Matildas), State Representative Teams and Senior Community club teams. 

The pre-requisites for enrolling in these courses would be that you would have to be at least 18 years of age, physically fit to participate in all practical sessions and submit a football resume of your playing and coaching experience. It is highly recommended that prior to applying for the Advanced courses, that you do a community coaching course, based on the age-group team that you currently coach. Successful enrolments are subject to approval of FFT's Technical Director. 

FFA/AFC C Licence - Senior or Youth


Suitable: Open to coaches 18 years of age currently coaching or interested in coaching either at Senior level or elite Youth players.

Pre- Requisites: There are no pre-requisites to apply for the C license course. But if the course is over subscribed (i.e.: more applicants than places), then coaches with greater playing and/or coaching experience will be given preferences. If you are not successful in getting a place on the course, we will endeavor to place you on a future course, however there are no guarantees.

Course Expectations: You must attend all sessions, and all parts of the course. You will not be allowed to proceed with the course if you miss part of it – NO EXCEPTIONS – you will need to go on a future course if this happens. So please do not apply if you cannot attend on the days scheduled. Your attendance is expected even if “your team has a game”.
