College delivered football course online

Brisbane Water Secondary College's Umina campus has successfully delivered its football elective online and at home this year, according to campus football coordinator Mr Mark Dixon.

The soccer program offered entry level refereeing and coaching courses recognised by Football Federation Australia resulting in a Laws of the Game certificate and a Miniroos' coaching certificate for students.

"This course has always been about the students and developing their knowledge of the game, not just from a player's perspective, but also with leadership roles such as refereeing and coaching," Mr Dixon said.

"Despite restrictions that impacted many facets of school and community sports participation this year, students have worked tirelessly to maintain a high level of involvement in the program throughout this extraordinary year of learning.

"The program, which focuses heavily on developing the complete footballing experience, facilitates not just the development of the practical skills of the game but also the officiating and coaching pathways in the sport.

"One of the biggest advances this year in the program was the creation and implementation of a digital platform for learning and training

"It really made us think outside the box in terms of how learning and training could be delivered in a way that still maintained the achievement of learning outcomes for the students.

"Online training videos, skills and fitness challenges, combined with student assessment, ensured the players were able to complete as many facets of the program as possible at home."
