2017 Coaches Wanted

November 29, 2016

The selection of coaches for FJFC teams is a critical process that requires a diligent, robust and transparent process. The club has a Coach Development Subcommittee that has overseen the recruitment and selection of coaches for a number of years and our Parent/Player Feedback Survey suggests that this has contributed to improvements in coaching at the club. We are delighted to announce the Coach Development Subcommittee with some new members joining experienced hands under the leadership of our Coaching Director (Matty Drew) and Coach Coordinator (Inger Pearce):

  • Michael Pickering – ex AFL player and prior Fitzroy Seniors coach
