To mark the start of the season, the MWFA are holding a number of fun, informative, interactive & confidence building coaching courses right here at Careel Bay!

Game Leader – 6pm-7pm Thu 8 Apr 
MWFA is pleased to again offer a number of FREE Game Leader workshops for parents of ALDI MiniRoos who are willing to help out in this role on match day, or who might be willing to if armed with a bit of knowledge and guidance on what being a Game Leader involves. These courses run for approximately 60 minutes and will cover the rules, practical scenarios and provide Q&A opportunities.

Note that these courses are free of charge, however, we do ask that attendees register and be punctual to avoid delaying the start of the course, or to avoid missing out on key information at the beginning.

For pre-course reading, or if any parents are unable to attend any of these courses but would like a basic understanding of the ALDI MiniRoos Playing Rules and Formats, CLICK HERE for the official guidelines.

MiniRoos Certificates – 7pm-9:30pm Thu 8 Apr
This course is designed for coaches/managers/volunteers and even parents involved with age groups U6 to U11.

The 3-hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN. The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.
The MiniRoos Certificate is FREE OF CHARGE for all participants, but online registration is still compulsory.
