West Coburg Football Club

Sports Trainers Needed

The Club is in urgent need of sports trainers for Junior and Senior games throughout the season.

Trainers will be required to provide strapping and taping, as well as on-ground medical assistance when required, as well as massage and rub-downs.

These are paid positions.  For Juniors (Sunday games), each day will require approximately 8 hours of attendance at matches and there will a requirement to travel to home and away grounds through 14 home and away matches and finals as required.  For Seniors (Saturday games), we’re looking for availability for strapping and taping on training nights (approx 2-3 hours Tuesday and Thursdays) and 8 hours attendance on Saturdays for 18 rounds of the home and away season plus finals as required.

For U8, U10 and U12, a first-aid certificate is required.  All other are groups and seniors requires a Sports Trainer Level 1 accreditation.  The Club will fund accreditation if you require it and are able to commit to the home and away season for Seniors or Juniors.

If you are interested or know of someone who could be interested, please send expressions of interest to James Baker at treasurer@wcfc.com.au.

Time-Keepers Sought for Senior Games

The Club is seeking supporters interested in being time-keeper for senior matches, either as official Club time-keeper for the duration of the season, or to assist on a match-by-match basis depending on availability.

The role puts you in charge of the clock for each quarter’s play, including time-on, as well as the siren.  You’ll be able to watch the game from the time-keepers box at each ground – typically some of the best seats in the house, especially on cold, west, windy winter Saturdays.

If you can assist for the season or for select rounds, please contact David Gloury at president@wcfc.com.au.
