Napier City Rovers would be unable to grow our Junior Blues without the hard work and dedication of the coaches who volunteer their time and energy to help our young players develop and follow their football dreams.
They spend their weekends coaching NCR junior teams, making sure children get active, develop their football skills and, most importantly, have fun.
Now is the chance to nominate your favourite NCR junior coach for the 2017 McDonald’s Junior Football Coach of the Year award.
Nominations are encouraged for positive behaviour both on and off the pitch, including supporting players positively from the touch line, introducing new players to the game and helping out in their local community.
Three regional shortlist winners selected from each federation will receive a coaching pack consisting of footballs, football bags, bibs and cones; while seven regional Coach of the Year winners will be provided with a t-shirt, shorts, socks, rain jacket, tactics board and trophy.
The overall prize for national Coach of the Year is an amazing football experience for two people in Abu Dhabi, including a behind-the-scenes look at Auckland City’s preparations for the world’s premier club tournament.
Nominations are open until July 9 and you can find more information and nominate your team’s junior football coach by clicking here.
The shortlisted winners will be announced on August 14 while the regional winners will be confirmed four days later and the national winner unveiled on August 22.
