Coaching is a great way to participate and give something back to the community. It is also a way to develop personally. Coaching provides opportunities to develop relationships with others in the community as well as helping develop your ability to organise and deliver instructions. 

The main requirements for new Junior coaches are enthusiasm and the ability to relate to children in a fun way. Knowledge and football experience help, however these also come from more time with your team.

Our Director of Football, Mark Tully, provides coaching instruction sessions at the start of the season and coaches can invite Mark to their own practices for guidance. 

Bay Olympic endeavours to provide support for the development of coaches as much as possible and we work closely with the Auckland Football Federation, promoting their Coaching pathway for development. Bay Olympic encourages coaches to develop themselves by attending their courses. 

As stated on the New Zealand Football website, the traditional Coach Education “goalposts” have shifted with the adoption of a new and exciting approach for developing coaches at all levels in the game.

The new approach will provide a smorgasbord of learning opportunities allowing coaches to identify and access personal development that corresponds with the players they are coaching and their specific developmental needs.

New Zealand Football Coach Education Pathway

The New Zealand Football Coach Education Pathway has courses available at all levels of the game including three age-related pathways – Junior, Youth and Senior. Each course provides coaches with age appropriate learning to enhance their players experience and development in the game. New Zealand Football’s approach is founded on the following principles:

Appropriate for New Zealand – reflective of New Zealand’s unique culture and football environment
Flexible – providing coaches with more choice and a higher degree of ownership in selecting and following their own development pathway
Lifelong learning – promoting continued personal development and self-responsibility for learning
Player Centred – based on the needs of the players and designed to meet the age-related development needs of players throughout the game
Applicable and practical – ‘on-the job learning’ experiences (creating and recognising learning experiences in the coaching environment)

NZF Community Coach Education Pathway

Coaches at the community level are the ‘backbone’ of the coaching family and crucial to increasing participation and laying the foundations in developing the basic skills and intrinsic motivation that players need to have a lifelong passion for football.

The Community Pathway provides the volunteer coach, who may have varying levels of football knowledge or experience, with learning to ensure that they engage the players in a highly stimulating way. Coaches can access courses without the need for assessment or accreditation in a range of methods to suit the needs of the players in the Community Pillar (Recreation and Participation).

The Community Coach Education courses in Auckland are provided by Auckland Football Federation (AFF).

NZF Advanced Coach Education Pathway

The Advanced Pathway provides coaches with a structure to become a professional, ‘expert’ coach. New Zealand Football recognise that the game needs expert coaches at all age groups in the talent pillars (Perform and Excel).

The philosophy of all of the coach education courses is to provide ‘authentic’ and realistic task-centred learning where candidates ‘learn through doing’ and by recognising and defining football problems. New Zealand Football’s approach is to get learners involved with football-related tasks and work to find solutions to these problems in a logical way. Getting coaches involved with realistic coaching situations will facilitate the ongoing application of the newly-acquired knowledge and skills. To allow coaches time to ‘apply and adapt new learning’ into their own environment, distance learning forms an integral part of coach education courses at all levels and provides candidates with an opportunity to practically adopt and apply theoretical aspects covered in courses and learn through self-reflective practice in their own unique environment.

Most importantly, these processes create coaches that are able to critically evaluate their own coaching, and take the required action to improve their coaching performance. This takes time and as such, New Zealand Football undertakes ‘post-course’ assessments for all advanced courses. This removes the traditional issues created by conducting ‘on- course’ assessments and enables coaches to focus on gaining a deeper understanding of the content and its application.
