Football Australia and Football West are hosting a B Diploma course in 2024 at the Sam Kerr Football Centre, in Queens Park.
The B Diploma is aimed at coaches working with players who are able to play football at a standard where they can confidently pass and receive the ball and scan for information, aged approximately 12 years of age and above. The focus of the course is on teaching players how to use techniques and combine with each other to apply the principles of attack when the team is in possession and the principles of defence when the team is out of possession.
Coaches are assessed while coaching players in opposed practices and small-sided games up to 8-v-8.
