Coaching in 2014

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

Our new coaching sub-committee of Russ Hart (Director of Football), Mark Atkinson (Head of Coaching) & Ian Cathcart (Secretary) has worked hard to create an exciting & robust coaching plan which will deliver top quality training.  We have also secured Daniel Oates, a Wynrs coach with international experience, to deliver additional coaching programmes.




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

As part of the commitment to supporting & educating coaches, AFF Level 1 Coaching for Junior & Senior coaches will be arranged, paid for in full by the club.  PLUS all coaches who this or any other AFF coaching qualification will 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 in the pipeline which will be very low cost to members (as subsidised by grants), run in-house by either Mark or Dan and on par with anything run by other football providers (usually at $120+ per term).

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