Coaches play a vital role in Touch Football, fostering the development of sports people both on and off the field.

The job of a coach is primarily to help athletes increase their level of performance, and assist teams in competing to a higher standard. However a sports coach is often much more than that. How often do you hear sportsmen or women talking about the lifelong impact a certain coach has had on them, not just in making them better athletes, but improving their life skills?

Coaching can be a very rewarding experience.

Southern Touch boast one of the most qualified affiliates within our state in regards to official certifications. If you want to be a coach, at Southern Touch you will be joining a family of dedicated and supportive coaches who can guide and assist.

Southern Touch, in conjunction with Touch Football Tasmania and NRL Touch Football, run regular accreditation courses throughout the year for individuals, clubs, schools and other entities as well as providing additional support and development opportunities for all Touch Football Coaches.
