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.
