Finding a Coaching Job

Please do not contact FFA for coaching opportunities. We recommend that you send your Coaching CV to your State Football Federation. Most State Federation websites have sections for clubs to advertise 'coaches wanted'. You may also wish to contact the State Associations directly and express interest.


Once you register as a coach with a Club or Association, you will be covered by that organisations' Insurance Policy. You will need to confirm the extent of the insurance coverage and exactly what benefits flow from the policy.

Check your Coaching Level & Update Personal Details 

You will need to visit the MyFootballClub website to view your current accreditation status and all personal information. Please make sure all personal information is up to date once you log in.

Community Coaches

Coaches who attend and pass a course will receive a Certificate and ID card. Certificates are issued by the organisation conducting the course. ID cards are issued by FFA approximately every three months.

Advanced Coaches

Coaches who attend and pass a course will receive a Certificate. Certificates are issued by the organisation conducting the course, or they will indicate that you will have access to printing them from your personal My Football Club profile.

I haven’t received my Certificate?
