SGFA is conducting two Coach Education Courses:
1. Grassroots Certificate:
The Grassroots Certificate is a highly beneficial Course for local coaches wishing to gain knowledge of age appropriate training sessions with an emphasis on coaching players aged 6 to 9. The Grassroots Course is the entry level of the Community Coaching Pathway.
The CPFC Committee encourages all Coaches & Managers that have not completed the Grassroots Certificate to attend. This course is run at no cost to the individual. Download details here:
2. Skill Training Certificate:
This Course is aimed at Coaches of players aged 9 to 13 and are in the ‘Skill Acquisition Phase.’ The Skill Training Course is for coaches who require the knowledge & competency to plan, organise and run age appropriate practices based on the new National Curriculum. This Course replaces the Junior Licence & is an accredited FFA program.
The CPFC focus is always on improving the quality of our coaches. As an incentive for our coaches to attend, CPFC will refund you $60 of the $120 registration fee upon completion.

Carss Park Football Club has been a long time supporter of the SGFRA. If you come down to our home ground on a Thursday night, you are more than likely to see the referee's training on Charles Pirie or using our clubhouse. A number SGFRA referee's have come from Carss Park, and notibly, as stated on our "about us" page, an ex Carss Park player Matthew Breeze made it as far as becoming an A'League Referee.
The St George Football Referees Association is looking for people interested in becoming a referee. Click on the links below for more information.
Take note that the SGFRA is also looking for 12 - 13 years old to start a referee training program beginning with the small sided games.
We would like to thank our previous sponsors for their valuable support. A reminder to club members that these companies are listed on left.
As you know the club relies heavily on their great support to run and provide many of the key activities, maintenance and equipment; and is vital for our continued work and success.
We are hoping to confirm the sponsors for 2014 soon and want to continue our existing relationships and are also looking for new support. If you or your company would like to support the club we would love to hear from you.
Please find the link to the 2014 Sponsorship Prospectus here outlining the features, benefits and costs of supporting the club. These can be negotiated or added to as required. Minor changes can be made to reflect the needs of your business and tailored to suit both parties. All requests are confidential.
We would like to finalise sponsorship as soon as possible (1 March or sooner) as the opportunities move quickly and we need to allow sufficient time for shirt and signage printing prior to the start of the season.
Looking forward to hearing from you and building a mutually beneficial partnership for players, teams, the club community, businesses and beyond.
On behalf of the CPFC Committee
