Coaching in 2015

Coaching and support for Coaches & Managers is a key area of focus this season.  

Our coaching sub-committee of Russ Hart (Director of Football), Mark Atkinson (Head of Coaching), Ian Cathcart (Secretary), Dan Oates & David Pivott have worked hard to ensure our exciting & robust coaching plan delivers top quality training in line with the Whole of Football Plan and Federation Talent Centre requirements.  

Look out for the 'Drury Drills' which all coaches will be incorporate into all team training programmes and look over the online resources in the 'Resources' section of this website.

As part of the commitment to supporting & educating coaches, all AFF Coaching courses for coaches are paid for in full by the club.  PLUS coaches or managers who complete AFF coaching qualifications receive a free DUFC coaches jacket!  We want to recognise the coaches & managers that make the effort to get qualifications to help the club. 

We also have some exciting additional coaching courses for players with Coerver NZ and in-house by either Mark or Dan on par with anything run by other football providers that are heavily subsidised or free.

We’ll have an academy style of learning across the whole club, with opportunities for all levels to develop and enjoy the game more.
