Coach of the Year

Every year thousands of junior coaches volunteer their time to help kiwi kids kickstart their football dreams. They spend their weekends coaching local teams and making sure children get active, develop their football skills and, most importantly, have fun!

As the primary supporter of junior football, McDonald’s want to celebrate these unsung heroes and are offering regional and national awards for “Coach of the Year”.

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 prize categories will be recognised:

  • Three (3) Regional Shortlist Winners from each Federation will receive a coaching equipment pack to use for training and games!
  • One (1) Regional Winner from each Federation will receive Nike apparel kit, tactics board, and a wet weather writer!
  • One (1) National Winner, the Coach of the Year, will receive a behind the scenes experience with Auckland City FC in Abu Dhabi for two!
