Become a Coach
The Alphas are one of the newest teams in the country and are due to enter into our inaugural season in Divison 2 of BAFANL. Coaches are supported by a strong management team, and can expect quality facilities, equipment, and an engaged playing squad of over 55 with an average weekly attendance at practice per week of over 40 players. As a club we are ambitious, professional and have high standards and aspirations. Our home gameday experience is particularly special, with the opportunity to play and coach in front of an average of 300 spectators.
Our Coaches work within a clearly defined coaching structure and are responsible for providing leadership, guidance, instruction and feedback to players in line with club philosophy and in accordance with the club’s Code of Ethics & Practices, as well as those of BAFA and BAFCA.
Our coaches must be strong communicators and able to build strong relationships in order to work successfully with athletes, other coaches, parents and relations of players, our community, the organisation’s Management Team as well as representatives from other teams within the league and the league itself.
Coaching experience is desirable, as is BAFCA Level 1 certification. Coaches without certification will be expected to work towards it at the earliest possible opportunity.
