Coaching a Narrabeen FC (NFC) team can be extremely rewarding. Narrabeen FC has tradition of producing competitive teams and exceptional players. This is largely due to coaches that are passionate about football, development of skills, fostering confidence individuals and understanding of team sport culture.

Football Federation Australia has embarked on a national football coaching syllabus. This is viewed as a foundation for the success of Australia as a football nation into the future. Find out more about the FFA National Curriculum

Like to coach a team at Narrabeen FC?

A coaching course is COMPULSORY for any person wishing to coach junior and youth football at NFC.

FFA football coaching courses are extremely accessible, incredibly informative, free to all MWFA registered coaches.

All participants must register online & pay $90 to be guaranteed a place on the course. The MWFA will reimburse all participants who are coaching in the MWFA for the full cost of the course once the participant has attended all sessions and the course has been completed. This is to avoid participants registering for the course and not attending all sessions.
