Coaches & Managers

A club of our size could not achieve success without the support and cooperation of our volunteer coaches and managers.  If you are interested in taking on the role of coach or manager for a team, please make yourself known to the appropriate age group Vice President.

If your team is considering engaging with an external, paid coach, please refer to the WFC Paid Coach Policy, which can be found under our Club Documents.

All coaches and managers must Register online via PlayFootball. There is no cost or fee to register as a Coach or Manager (Volunteer), it is free. Please carefully read the details below together with the registration instructions before registering on-line.

Getting your registration correct the first time eliminates the need for our volunteer committee members to spend a lot of time fixing errors.

  • You must register using the Football Federation Australia ‘Play Football’ national registration. 
  • Each coach & manager need their own FFA Number.
