GTFC programs are designed to be enjoyable, skill developing and all inclusive. We promote healthy, active programs that encourage all children to be involved and included. We believe all children should receive equal time on the ball and promote games and skills to emphasise this commitment.
All due care is taken to avoid the prospect of injury or interruption to a GTFC Program. We have a 16-1 policy that ensures coaches are not overloaded with too many participants. We also have adopted a backup coach policy, ensuring no coach is left alone to deal with any potential problems that arise during a session. All coaches are trained and hold necessary qualifications to deal with a wide range of problems.
Coaching with GTFC:
All GTFC coaches hold a minimum of the following qualifications;
Working with children check - blue card
Football Federation Australia certificates and/or licenses
Basic First Aid Qualification including providing CPR
GTFC is committed to the continual growth of our coaches and we constantly endeavor to up skill and invest time, effort and money into ensuring our coaches provide the best possible activities and skills to your children, including sending coaches on recognised FFA courses and workshops.
GTFC take pride in our coaches and therefore all must have a friendly, approachable demeanor, a positive disposition and, be a role model for the program participants.
Any behaviour which is outside the bounds of the FFA Code of Conduct Policy will be deemed unacceptable.
Participants will initially be spoken to in order to give them an opportunity to correct any issues.
A second occurrence will see participant excluded for a period form the sessions and the Parent's or Guardian advised that day.
Any further unacceptable behaviour will see the participant removed from the Clinic session and their parent or guardian contacted to collect them immediately. They will take no further part in the Clinc.
