OUR COACHING PRINCIPLES
At Moggill Football Club, we believe in providing a positive and friendly learning environment where players are challenged and are
allowed to develop technically, tactically, physically and psychologically. Our goal is to not only educate players, but also to let
the players have fun. We aim to provide an experience and an environment that promotes ongoing participation in football and a lifelong
love for the game.
Let’s not forget that football is a game.
Our identity as a community based club is not only expressed by the way we play football, but also through our coaching methodology
and the relationships we have with our players and their parents. All coaches at Moggill FC are volunteers who dedicate their time
and energy to ensure our players are able to participate.
At Moggill FC , we don’t believe that a session or game full of instructions and orders from a coach has a positive effect on a player’s
development, as they are being commanded rather than coached. Instead, we encourage players to facilitate and contribute to their own
learning. This is achieved through the use of questions and answers during a session, and encouraging players to think for themselves
and expedite their own learning process, as this is a form of guided discovery.
We want to give all our players the opportunity to be the best that they can be. We know that the development needs of young players change
over time. Whilst our philosophy remains consistent across the club, its application is varied to suit a continuum of changing needs for the
developing player. We refer to the FFA curriculum as the coaching standard for the club, which is followed by all age groups and coordinated
by our Junior Director of Coaching.
We also run an Academy Programme for our Mini Roo age group players which assist with development and skills acquisition.
MFC are active in and encourage coach education through the FFA pathway beginning with the Grass roots Coaching course for all coaches.
More information about the FFA Curriculum (including training sessions) can be found in the Coach Development section below.
