Melbourne Heart FC has joined together with the Australian Sports Commission’s Active After-school Communities (AASC) program to promote football in the community.

Melbourne Heart FC has joined together with the Australian Sports Commission-s Active After-school Communities (AASC) program to promote football in the community, and is recruiting representatives.

The AASC are building a workforce to represent Melbourne Heart FC in the community by delivering structured football programs in primary schools across Victoria.

With 50 schools in both Bendigo and Shepparton and a further 25 schools in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne participating in the program, there are many opportunities for coaches to become involved.

If selected, coaches will be given the opportunity to represent Melbourne Heart FC as a coach within the Australian Government-s Active After-school Communities (AASC) program.

To be eligible for these roles you must be over the age of 16, have a passion for football and be able to attend a free Community Coach Training Course where you will receive a formal coaching accreditation upon completion.

By providing children with a positive introduction to sport in a fun, safe and inclusive environment, Melbourne Heart through the AASC program is helping to build the foundation needed for children to naturally and confidently progress into local club football.

If you would like to be considered for selection as part of the Melbourne Heart team and you have a passion to promote football in your local community, please contact the club at community@melbourneheartfc.com.au for more information.

The AASC program is a national initiative that provides primary school children with access to free sport and other structured physical activity programs in the after-school time slot of 3.00pm to 5.30pm.

Over 190 000 children participate in the AASC program around Australia each term.
