For the second year the MyCoach ‘Develop to Win” advanced football program will run for the duration of 2019.
This advanced football program is for children in the U7 to U12 age groups open to new and existing players of Oatley Football Club.
As with 2018 the structured program is led by the expertise of Ivo De Jesus and Fabio Macolino with additional experienced coaches who are completing their C Class licences over 2019.
The aim of the MyCoach program is to provide a structured development program without the high cost of a skills acquisition program. Let’s keep the talent within the grassroots organisation still enabling our children to have a pathway to football success.

Frequently Asked Questions
MyCoach believe a structured program is not suitable for a child in their first year of football.
The $150 is for MyCoach coaching equipment and apparel.
MyCoach are proud to represent Oatley FC however in our philosophy of providing a structured development program that is different from other teams we would like our teams to have a different uniform. The strip colours will still be same.
In 2018, the Adidas clothing worn by the coaches and players looked professional and provided an identity for the hard work, commitment and dedication of the MyCoach program. At Gala Days and the Kanga Tournament in 2018 the MyCoach uniform looked outstanding and provided confidence for our children even before they stepped out onto the field.
As part of the program your child needs to attend both training sessions to enable to them to fully benefit from the MyCoach program.
Your child can still trial for other Oatley FC teams in the new year.
Yes your daughter can trial for MyCoach. In 2018 we did have some female players in MyCoach teams.
Please be aware that in the U7-U11s there were female only teams that played in a female only competition that were not MyCoach. In 2018 Oatley FC had huge successes in female football who were already coached by experienced and successful coaches. You may find this a more appropriate option.
Oatley FC is passionate and committed in providing significant football opportunities for females.
