Yarra Magpies Academy Coaching Positions

The Yarra Magpies is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) for Coaching Positions in its Academy.

Recently the YJFL announced to presidents of its member clubs the formation of an exciting partnership with Collingwood Football Club in the delivery of its Next Generation Academy and Representative programs.

As such the Yarra Magpies (Combined Yarra JFL/Collingwood NGA) Program is looking for Level 2 or 3 Accredited or significantly experienced and /or dedicated foundation level accredited coaches to join the coaching panel for 2019.

Together, we look to harness and develop talent at under 12, 13, 14 and 15 Boys and Girls to improve their fundamental skill base and compete against other Metropolitan leagues in mid 2019.

The program begins in March. Appointments may be made in February.

In season training nights will be:

  1. Monday: Under 13 Boys, Under 13 Girls and Under 15 Girls

  2. Wednesday: Under 14 and Under 15 Boys

Applications may be accepted from coaches currently engaged at Club level, in other representative teams, in TAC Cup, other NGAs, leagues or school programs if their credentials are well developed.

We are seeking exceptionally committed, self-controlled, player-centric coaches, proficient in fundamental skill development, team development and individual player feedback. An ability to incorporate game sense drills and activities is vital.

Please note; We will not seek to make appointments of coaches in the year level of their own child’s involvement. As a preference, appointments will be made at the year level above, below or other gender. We do this to avoid any perception of conflict of interest.

Expressions of interest detailing experience and personal details (no more than two pages) should be sent to David Sheridan, YJFL Talent Development Manager and Mitch Cook, Collingwood Pathways Manager.   

Marked:               Yarra Magpies  Academy Coaching Expression of Interest
