Sunday Men’s Teams Coaches

We are always on the lookout for coaches for our men’s Sunday league teams. No prior coaching is experience required but a passion for football and good people skills are necessary! We receive very positive feedback regarding this role, the consensus being this is a cruisy and satisfying job.

Responsibilities include squad selection, running weekly training sessions (Wednesday/Thursday nights) and match days (Sunday morning/afternoons), and a little bit of general club admin.

You can choose to have an assistant, a co-coach, and/or a supporting leadership group. You are free to delegate tasks as you please to make your job as easy as it can be.

All competitive sports teams aim to succeed, but in addition to this our Sunday league teams strive to uphold a positive club culture and seek to have as much fun off the pitch as they do on it, whether this be with after game bevs in the clubhouse, or going for a pub meal together instead of training if it’s 5 degrees and pouring with rain.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in then please do reach out at [email protected].

Why coach at MUSC?

We are an inclusive club that values community, player development and performance.

Our coaches are well supported by a proactive committee and a team of engaged volunteers who take on a lot of the team admin, allowing our coaches to focus on coaching. Our coaches are also encouraged to connect and learn from each other – recognising the wealth of football knowledge among the team and helping coaches of all levels develop.

Based in Princes Park, Carlton North, our central location and connection with the University of Melbourne make us an attractive destination for a large number of talented players from overseas, interstate, regional Victoria and Melbourne.

We are committed to supporting women to take on coaching positions. If you identify as a woman (cis/trans), nonbinary or gender diverse coach, or aspiring coach, please do not hesitate to express your interest.
