Coaches Pathway

Coastal Spirit Football Club is proud to provide a coaching program that supports, develops and guides coaches and key teams throughout the club as they move forward in football.

This initiative, the clubs Coaches Network, in conjunction with the New Zealand Football Coaching Pathway, complements our extensive player development pathway.

The network, overseen by Football Development Manager Gary Bennett, works with our promising junior, youth and senior coaches to give them the best opportunity and environment to fulfill their potential.

Seminars and Clinics generally take place once a month throughout the year.

For more information please contact us.

The network, now in its 5th year of operation, has enabled many coaches to further their knowledge of the game with several going on to coach Mainland representative teams or senior competitive sides.

Key opportunities to develop are primarily derived from our Skill Centre program, which then lead onto coaching in the annual Kanga Cup, Auckland City U17 and Lotto U19 tournaments.
