Thanks for Coaching!
On behalf of the East Perth District, thank you for taking on a coaching role. We understand that coaching a football team can sometimes be challenging. That's why the East Perth District has appointed two specialist Coaching Coordinators, Mil Preiato and Laurie Hart. These two men have extensive experience in coaching at community club level (both junior and senior) and are only too willing to offer their assistance to our club coaches.
Mil Preiato: 0412 560 797 or email@example.com
Laurie Hart: 0419 045 554 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The East Perth District runs a level 1 coaching course each year. This course is for coaches of Auskick, Modified and Youth age teams. A separate level 1 senior course is run centrally by the WAFC for coaches of senior (18 yrs +) teams. The WAFC runs a level 2 coaching course each year at Patersons Stadium.
