A few words
from our Club President, Steve Christou
A number of changes both on and off field has the club very excited about the coming season. With just under 500 players last year the future looks bright for the club. For 2020 we will have Kickstart program for children 4-7 , Hub teams for ages 7-11, Junior competitions for ages 12-17 as well as Metro Senior teams and local Senior competition. As part of our inclusive philosophy we cater a wide range of abilities and interest and encourage new comers to the Surf Coast family. I am also looking forward to the future development of our Clubrooms and extra change rooms being provided via the Victorian State Labor Party.
Surf Coast FC has always placed strong emphasis on player development and in 2019 the club took it to another level with the appointment of former Newcastle Jets Academy Director and current Australian Under 15s Assistant Coach, Michael Cooper as our Technical Advisor. The introduction of the Surf Coast FC Academy which was headed up by Michael, will continue to aid the development of players in the region. To further enhance this model we have appointed Blaine Burrell as Head Coach of the Academy who will work closely with Michael who remains appointed as Technical Advisor.
Senior level sees the continuation of Mariela Pocklington as Head Coach of the Women's team and the appointment of 2019 Assistant Coach Rob Panetta to the Head Coach of the Senior Mens.
I personally would like to thank all returning and incoming coaching coordinators, coaches, team managers and volunteers for the coming season. A special mention to our committee and working groups who have been working hard over the off season. Your support is imperative and the club couldn’t function without it.
Hats off to our Sponsors.
