Being one of the biggest clubs on the Gold Coast numbers wise can come with many challenges on a day to day basis.
Coomera Soccer Club have implemented a new strategy moving forward for the 2018 season and beyond to deal with the high work load of developing future super stars of our game.
The club has introduced a number of new additions to its set up, with the most notable being an Operations Manager who is in charge of controlling the movement of teams on a training night.
With this, the club has noticed a significant improvement in the control of not only the equipment but the output the coaches are able to execute without having to worry about unnecessary things.
Andy Haynes is the Operations Manager of Coomera Soccer Club and has seen a significant improvement with these new systems.
“We now have better control as a club over the quality we can put out. Our director of coaching Simon can jump in at any time and assist players and coaches with their development without having to worry about the unnecessary things.”
The club has also linked with NPL side Brisbane Strikers who run an SAP program, with Coomera teams training out of their grounds three times a week but playing their games out of Coomera.
“The SAP programmes that we run are all about improving our club, coaches, parents, players and club profile. They now know that they will get good value for money when they join Coomera,” said Haynes.
The club has also faced difficult times with their current facility, with the gradual decline of their current clubhouse. After being granted $1.5 million dollars to build a new clubhouse, the member of parliament was unfortunately not elected and the club is back to square one.
The facility improvement would have been substantial to the club with a number of key areas such as canteen, hall hire space, changing rooms, equipment room and offices some of many benefits that the club is in dire need of.
“The area is in need of a clubhouse of such. We work with Helensvale and Coomera Netball Clubs so the space would be used very effectively. This would be a focal point for the local community and bring in much needed funds for the running of the club,” said Haynes.
