Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.

Coaching Pathways Program
Football Federation Australia believe that coaches can, and should, have a direct impact on quality of the football experiences of all players that will lead to a lifelong love of and engagement in the game.
One of the identified weaknesses of Coach Education in the past was that there was only one stream of courses available, whether you were coaching a social team of amateurs once a week or Head Coach of a State Premier League team.
The courses were also far too short to deliver enough long-term learning or produce enough elite Australian coaches.
It was clear that two pathways were required, especially when one accepts that players can generally be divided into two streams: those that play for Participation, and those considered Performance players.
Therefore, the Two Pathway system was introduced in 2007:
- The Community Pathway
- The Advanced Pathway
