Mooroopna Football Club Netball Club

The Mooroopna Football Netball Club is affiliated in the strong Goulburn Valley Football Netball League. The GVFNL is currently ranked 4th in the 2020 VCFL Community Championship rankings.

MFNC enjoys brilliant facilities. The main oval has new match standard lighting and there are 3 other ovals in outstanding condition along with extensive sporting fields.

We have had 4 AFL draftees in the last 6 years and our U16's won the premiership in 2017 and were runner's up last year. This year our U18's sit second on the ladder. We need a strong committed coach who can lead these junior players to senior success

Our senior coaching position is available for season 2020 and beyond. The club has recently hired John Lamont (John has spent the last 10 years as Werribee senior VFL coach and assistant coach at North Melbourne in the AFL) to complete a report for the club to enable the MFNC to become successful again at senior level quickly. We as a club are determined to implement the report and are looking for a senior coach to develop our young playing list.

The club is determined to do everything in its power to create an environment whereby this group of players remain with the club for many years to come. We seek a senior coach with the ability to work with both the playing group and the committee to achieve this outcome.

Note. The MFNC is equally comfortable appointing a playing coach or a coach only. As this is the senior most coaching position in the club we are wanting to appoint the best coach we possibly can. If that person can combine both coaching and playing well and good.

The successful applicant will need to possess the following skills and attributes

  • Minimum level 1 coaching accreditation.
  • Develop a game plan that will enable the club to be competitive in all grades
  • Play a leading role in developing an environment whereby players know they will be able to play their best football and have the best time doing it

  • Provide strong leadership to not only the playing group and coaching group but across the whole club.
  • Excellent personal skills to be able to communicate across all levels of the football netball club
