Nick is a passionate coach and player. He has many years experience as a junior player coach via school programs and clubs.
Nick’s role as Junior Development Officer (JDO) is to oversee the U6-U11 community program. Nick will assist all volunteer coaches throughout the season by providing them with additional hands-on coaching opportunities, providing them with a training program and assisting them with their delivery at training sessions and on game days. Nick’s role is not to coach the teams, but to educate our volunteer coaches and provide support at training and on game days to ensure that we get the best out of our junior players.
Nick will also review players on a regular basis with a view to identify both skilful and struggling players who might benefit from extra training sessions aimed at their enhancement and/or offer game time at a higher level.
The JDO role is a critical role in the support and development of our coaches and players and provides a season-round approach to player pathways at the club.
