Increase your knowledge

The Community Pathway is aimed at coaches whose preference is to coach at the Amateur level. The course aims to increase the coach’s knowledge and develop skills in the preparation, organisation and administration of safe, age-related training sessions.

Capital Football offers a full range of Community Courses and coaches can now opt for courses that are aligned with the FFA Building Blocks and specific to the age they are coaching.

Expand your football coaching knowledge by signing up for one of our FFA approved Community Courses today – see list of scheduled courses below.

Please note that when registering for a FFA Community course (where payment is applicable) payment in full is required at the point of registration to ensure acceptance onto the course.  See the following statement (clause 1) from the FFA Course Registration Term and Conditions:

If you would like to participate in the Course, you must:

  • Complete all areas of the registration application; and
  • Pay the course fees either by cheque or money order made payable to the relevant course administrator or by completing the online payment process.
  • As of 2016 all coaches will be required to hold a ‘Working with Vulnerable People’ (WWVP) card, therefore before the course can be completed your WWVP card must be obtained. To obtain this card please follow this link: Apply for working with vulnerable people registration.

Grassroots Courses are fully subsidised by FFA, CF and Member clubs. There is no charge for this course but all participants must still register online (Step 1) in order to receive a certificate and accreditation from FFA.
