Junior League coaches

Interested in becoming a coach this season?

The Season kick off is around the corner and teams being formed will need a coach. In general, the majority of GUFC younger teams will have a volunteer coach/game facilitator self-appointed and we would like these coaches to have completed the FFA/Capital Football grassroots courses. GUFC will work with CF and coach coordinators to run more of these courses prior to the junior league season starting.

To align with the GUFC vision we would like to ensure development opportunities are available for selected coaches. Our goal is to see that our division 1 and 2 junior coaches (U10-U18) hold a Junior Licence as a minimum, and where possible a Youth Licence is desirable.

All GUFC coaches must register on myfootballclub, comply with ACT Government’s Working With Vulnerable People requirements.
