Coaching at East Bentleigh Soccer Club


Have you considered coaching a team?

The club has a variety of coaches within its ranks. Former and current players, community pathway and professionally qualified coaches, parents with a coaching background in other sports or just active mums or dads who are eager to learn and looking for a challenge and the opportunity to share a positive, enjoyable and rewarding experience with their son or daughter.

We have a variety of teams from advanced, intermediate and beginners.

In terms of coaching, we don't drop you in the deep end. We will teach you how to run an effective training session. We offer extensive coaching support in the form of in-house coaching workshops and training sessions facilitated by external soccer academies for you and your team. We can arrange for an existing coach to help you get started. We reimburse FFA coaching courses. We provide you with drills and learning materials.

We need you to succeed so that our players enjoy the experience.
