Coach Development Subcommittee

It’s with great pleasure I’m delighted to announce a revamped Coach Development Subcommittee structure and welcome some brand new members to help guide and develop our wonderful coaches throughout the 2018 season.

FJFC is in a great position, and the evolution of Coach Dev is something that really sets us apart from every other club. Having the resources to help and develop our coaches is something we don’t take for granted, and tapping into the experience of the people we know and trust is super important to maintain the standards we aspire to.
