The QTF Coach Developer Program (CDP) is a new, free initiative that encourages coaches from across the state to take their coaching journey and skill set to the next level. Suitable for coaches of U10s and U12s, it is through a combination of training and mentoring, where we’ll focus on supporting the coach on the job, this exciting program is designed to support our junior and emerging coaches and provide professional development opportunities catered to the individual coach’s needs.

The program will be launched at our upcoming Junior State Cup in July where participating coaches will receive face to face, on-field coaching support throughout the event. Coaches will gain the confidence and skills to create a positive and welcoming experience for all players, and learn. From pre-event coaching and game plan development to developing technical, tactical and process-related game plans – the program covers it all.

How the program will work

The program will be offered through three phases, with a Coach Developer allocated to each registered participant.

  1. Coaches will join an interactive online session on Wednesday, 1 June, where Coach Developers will discuss training and game plans for the Junior State Cup.
  2. Coaches will then attend an exclusive, invitation-only, Coach Developer Forum where they can pick the brains of the Coach Developers and fellow coaches.
  3. Coaches will receive face-to-face coaching and support from the Coach Developer throughout the Junior State Cup carnival, and receive a post tournament feedback report to complete the program.
