MHSOBFC – 2016 Under 19 Coaching Vacancy

 The Club:

MHSOBFC have a decorated history in the VAFA dating back to 1928 with over 20 premierships across the grades. In 2016 we have a stronger financial position and higher participation levels than ever before. Many of the 2015 Under 19 players have committed to playing in 2016.

Melbourne High is one of the most picturesque places to play and watch football in Melbourne. The recently renovated change rooms are ideal for match day preparation. Players at Melbourne High School OBFC also have access to some of the best facilities in the VAFA.

You will be welcomed into a settled coaching group and active community of players and supporters. If you are looking to build experience as a coach or in the field of education this is the job for you!

The Job:

The Coach’s primary responsibility is to organise and educate our Under 19’s players.  A game plan will filter down form the senior grades and the Coach will be expected to implement their version of this within the context of Under 19’s football.

Training is on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6.00pm – 8.15pm and involves the whole Club.  The Under 19 Coach will support the Senior Coach by assisting and occasionally running training drills for the whole Club as well as devising separate training programs and drills for the Under 19 team.

The Under 19 Coach will be a member of the selection panel, and will attend the weekly Thursday night dinners where teams are announced.
