Parents are encouraged and welcome to coach junior teams. Taroona FC is a community club run almost entirely by volunteers, parental involvement
is essential for the club to operate. Where a parent volunteers to coach their child’s team they will have their child’s registration fee refunded. All
equipment will be provided. Most teams will need a parent coach. The alternative is for a whole team to register for the Skills program and parents
will need to run the game on Saturday mornings.
The TFC Junior Skills training program for the duration of the soccer season is facilitated by accredited coaches supported by developing coaches.
All U5-U7 teams will need a parent coach as well as a team manager. For U5-U7 teams based at Albuera Street Primary training will continue to be at the school on a Wednesday afternoon straight after school and will finish at 4pm (negotiable). For U5-U7 teams based at Taroona training times will be at the school oval at a time to be decided by the coach. Training is reliant on a parent nominating to coach the team. Footballs, cones, pop-up goals and whistles will be provided. To be registered each team will need a parent volunteer to coach and another to manage the team. We strongly encourage all parents to attend the first training to get the team organised. Parents must ensure that their child is adequately supervised, whether by themselves or by another parent. This is not the coach’s responsibility; they are there to coach.
The volunteer coach will have their child’s (one only) registration fee rebated ($100 in 2023).
For U8-U12 teams without a parent coach to take training sessions, training will be conducted through the TFC Junior SAP training program which operates from Parliament Street Park on Wednesday afternoons at 3.30pm, and Kelvedon Oval/Taroona High School Top Oval on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4.00pm for the duration of the soccer season.
The program is designed for those new to the game, those who just want to have fun, and also for players looking to pursue a development or high-performance pathway. The program is facilitated by accredited coaches. The cost of registration is an additional $180 total for terms 2 and 3 if registration for the whole period if completed before the season starts. This is also available to any player who would like to participate in additional training.
All volunteers must also register on the Play Football site when their team is registered. There is no cost for registering as a volunteer.
Volunteers must hold a current Working With Vulnerable People registration and must provide their card number. If a parent is thinking about volunteering and doesn’t hold this registration it would be advisable to commence the registration process as it can take some time for it to be processed. There is a small fee on application associated with this. More information can be found at Registration to work with vulnerable people (cbos.tas.gov.au).
Games are played on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm. In 2023 some games may be played on Friday nights where a team requests it. Details of games check out our Club Calendar
