We want to provide the best environment for our coaches to learn and develop their skills which will strengthen the club-based coaching and programmes offered to our players and members.

FC TWENTY 11 is not only for players, but also for coaches who understand the Club’s culture and its direction, and who want to grow their coaching knowledge.

All coaches need to be appropriately educated in their field in order to help enhance players’ development and talent. Coaches may also want to see their own progression and development to this end we are committed to support Coach Education and the up-skilling of all of our coaches by subsidising and or paying for relevant courses when budgets allow (refer Coaching Policy Statement)



Coaches wanting to attend specific courses should make contact with our Football Development Manager, Ollie Hawkins (ollie@fctwenty11.co.nz) well in advance so details can be discussed, considered and or attendance budgeted and planned for.

11+ Kids Course

Coaches will walk away with a whole new Injury Prevention Warm Up program resource tailored for 4-12 year old footballers. This contains a series of different exercises designed to help kids develop their fundamental movement patterns while additionally being proven to reduce children’s injuries in football by 38-50% and also improve their physical performance. Coaches will understand the background to the program, the physical characteristics of our junior footballers and most importantly have a series of new games for which to use with their team this season.



11+Youth/Adults Course 

The 11+ is a complete warm-up programme to reduce injuries among male and female football players aged 14 years and older and enhance their performance by making them fitter, faster and stronger. The programme was developed by an international group of experts, and its effectiveness has been proven in several scientific studies. Teams that performed the 11+ at least twice a week had 30-50% fewer injured players. The programme should be performed, as a standard warm-up, at the start of each training session at least twice a week, and it takes around 20 minutes to complete. It should also be completed prior to matches however only utilising the running exercises so will take less time. The programme has been rolled out in other major footballing countries around the world including Germany, Brazil, Spain and Japan.



Following completion of these courses coaches will have sufficient knowledge of both programmes and how they relate to the different age groups they are working with.
