We are always thankful for the time and dedication our coaches put into our teams at Merrylands SFC. Many of whom are parents with little to no experience in the game.

We are working hard to try and improve the training and resources our coaches have to enable them to teach our kids the knowledge and skills of football.

As part of the new guidelines from Football NSW, all coaches require a Working With Children Check (WWCC) regardless of whether your child is in your team (which was an exception in the past)

For information on how to apply for your WWCC number, see the website.

There is also a wide range of new and training material at the Football NSW Coach Hub website. You can find set training drills and how to plan your sessions to make it easier and more effective for your team.
