One of our core missions is to remove any barriers to accessing organised sport. That's why Fitzroy Lions is completely free to play – the only registered soccer club in Victoria to offer this. No club fees, no registration fees, and all kit is provided free of charge.
Alongside our junior teams, we also run community outreach and after-school programs.
We are seeking enthusiastic coaches to ensure Fitzroy Lions can continue to meet growing demand and serve the community.
Our coaches are part of our community, so ideally we are looking for people who want to play a mentoring and leadership role for our kids and families.
We understand that people are busy and may not be able to commit to a 'full time' team role. For coaches, all we ask in terms of continuity is that you are able to attend at least two training sessions per month.
As a junior coach, you will be responsible for leading/supporting training sessions, including planning, delivery of the session and team management (together with another coach). You will also be responsible on match day, including warm up, roster, coaching and leadership.
No direct coaching experience is required, but an understanding of soccer and/or experience working with kids is desirable. You will also require a working with children check.
Please get in touch with Eloise (0406 833 404) if you'd like to have a chat about this opportunity. To apply, please email us with a bit about yourself and your relevant skills and experience. Thanks!
