Mosman Netball Club strongly encourages parents to volunteer to coach. It is a very rewarding experience and your daughters will love you being involved.
The Club recognizes that volunteer coaches have different levels of playing and coaching experience and as a Club, we are committed to providing coaches with the resources and ongoing support they need throughout the season. For more information, see Junior Coaching Support Programme.
In addition, the Club will reimburse coaches for the cost of attending relevant external coaching courses run by NSNA.
We welcome all senior players interested in coaching and will give you the same support as parent volnteers even though you may be paid by your team to coach. Please contact the Coaching Convenor or Junior Club Administrator if you would like more information.
If your team does not have a parent volunteer, the Club’s Coaching Convenor will try to assist. The club is trying to encourage more of its senior players to coach junior teams, but this is usually not on a volunteer basis. In attracting coaches, we are competing with private schools who pay their coaches very well.
Note that special ‘Working with Children’ requirements apply to paid coaches.
Northern Suburbs Netball Association (NSNA) runs a number of coaching courses throughout the season. Some are free to affiliated clubs and others have a charge. Mosman Netball Club encourages its coaches to attend courses appropriate to the level they are coaching and will reimburse any fees incurred.
The Foundations Course is a Netball NSW Course and coaches must complete an online course Beginning Coaching General Principles as a prerequisite. Note that the foundations course is probably more appropriate for those coaching older teams e.g. 12 and above but the online course is beneficial for all coaches.
The Club will advise coaches by email closer prior to registration for the courses.
More information about the courses is available on the Netball NSW website (Pathways for Coaches) and the NSNA website.
Mosman Netball Club - Coaching Clinics
Mosman Netball Coaching Clinics for Coaches and their teams were scheduled for the preseason in training time (ie nettas Monday, 10's Tuesday, 11's Wednesday, 12's - 14's Thursday). However, they have been delayed pending opening of the new indoor centre.
See Junior Coaching Support for more information about the programme.
All volunteers coaching players under 18 must sign a Prohibited Employment Declaration, form downloadable from this site. Coaches who have signed a form previously in relation to coaching with MNC do not need to sign another form. New coaches should send forms to The Administrator, Mosman Netball Club Inc, PO Box 7, Mosman NSW 2088.
From 1 May 2010, coaches who are paid by their teams are legally required to hold a 'Certificate for Self Employed People'. The certificate lasts 3 years and must be produced if requested. Failure to produce a certificate can result in fines up to $2,200. Coaches may apply for a certificate now but the legal requirement to hold one comes into force on 1 May 2010.
Please read the Club’s policy on Working with Children.
