Coaches are integral to the football experience at GUFC and we’re very appreciative existing and new coaches.

All GUFC teams require a coach and all our coaches are volunteers from within the club – parents, players and others interested in football.

Coaches don’t have to be experienced or qualified to get involved. Skills and experience vary according to age group/grade, but generally we ask all GUFC coaches have:

  • passion for football
  • a good understanding of the game
  • good people skills
  • high level commitment to fair play and good sportsmanship.

Coaching support

Coaches and coach education are key to player enjoyment and development. Coaches at GUFC are supported by:

  • Regular emails and updates
  • Free training courses and coaching sessions throughout the season
  • training and resources for coaches
