Most community football teams are led/coached by a parent or parents willing to look after a team for the season. It is a very rewarding experience and lots of fun too. Courses, assistance and resources for all coaches will be available from the club and through Auckland Football. Please indicate on the enrolment form if you are interested in coaching a team.
