2013 ALA National Conference for Coaches and Officials

The ALA is proud to present the inaugural National Conference for Coaches and Officials. This conference has been developed to further develop the skills and knowledge of all our Coaches and Officials.

Keynote speakers will include Current Australian Team Coaches, along with Professional coaches from other sporting codes.

Some of the other presentations will feature current and former Australian players and Coaches, who are experts in their fields.

The Coaching presentations have been split into a Men’s and Women’s Stream, and will feature a mixture of Tactical, and Skill focused presentations with a particular focus on some of the specialist positions of Goalkeeper, Face-Off and Centre Draws. They will also look into ways you can incorporate skill development for these specialist players into all of your coaching sessions.

These will be delivered in a mix of practical field based demonstrations, and more traditional lecture style presentations.

The Officiating stream will look into the game day mechanics and skills required for all officials to advance their skills and move up the Officials Pathway towards National Championships and International Events. The ALA Director of Officiating – Graham Sharpe will also detail his plans for the Development of a National Officials Association.
