Trainers Required

The Central District Football Club is in URGENT NEED of Sports Trainers for its League, Reserves, Underage and Senior Women Teams.

So what does a Sports Trainer do?  He or she is a vital member of the Football Club by providing a crucial link between the coach, player and health professionals (Doctors / Physios / Podiatrists).

What accreditation is required?  A Level 1 or 2 SMASA Accreditation is required.  If you are not already qualified, the Football Club will be offering free training that will help provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

The role also involves the running of water out to players on match days, along with taping and massaging.

In recent years, this role has been implemented in more and more teams around Australia and the world.  Our Football Club is putting more emphasis on ensuring our trainers have up-to-date qualifications and hands on experience.

Put simply, Sports Trainers are part of the fabric and heartbeat of our Football Club.  They play a key role in player preparation and safety at all levels.
