Senior Level 1 Coaching Course

Capital Football are pleased to announce that we are holding New Zealand’s first Female Only Senior Level 1 Coaching course at the Capital Football offices in Petone.

The course is being run by New Zealand Football’s Head of Football Development Bev Priestman, Women’s Development Manager Emma Humphries and former Football Ferns Assistant Coach and Football Fern legend, Wendi Henderson.

This female specific coaching course takes place in a friendly, welcoming environment, facilitated by three of New Zealand’s most prominent females in the game. There will be a theory and practical part to the course. We will aim to use players on the day to participate so you can spend more time observing as coaches.

What will be covered?

  • Warm Ups
  • What to do on Game Day
  • Benefits of Small Sided Games

It is an informative starting point for coaches looking for guidance on the best way to coach adults.

The course takes place on Saturday 2nd March from 9am-5pm. This female coaching pathway is proudly supported by Persil, therefore is offered at the reduced rate of $40 per person.

If you wish to register your interest for this course please contact Capital’s Women’s Development Officer, Natalie Lawrence at
