A BIG Redback’s Welcome to Kogulan Sabaratnam: Our New ERFC Technical Director & Coach Developer
We would like to welcome Kogulan to our club and wish him every success as he begins his journey as Technical Director with our Phase 1 Discovery/SAP, Phase 2 Game Training phases and U18s as we strive to achieve our goal of providing the best coaching in Victoria.
Kogu is a local man, born and raised in Lower Plenty, and is currently completing his FFA/AFC ‘A’ Licence. He has been coaching in Australia for the past 8 years from the grassroots to the NPL level at both the junior and senior level. He has been a coach educator for the past 4 years and has a real passion for developing and nurturing coaches to improve the standard and access of coaching to junior footballers.
Kogu is currently an academy coach at Melbourne City Football Club after spending 4 years coaching NPL at Box Hill United Soccer Club. He will join our experienced coaches including Bobby McGuiness, Paul Harris, Cassie Dimovski, David O’Connor and Pat O’Conner who all played at a professional level. I am sure it will be a positive learning experience for Kogu as well.
Kogu is looking forward to working with the fantastic coaches and staff at Eltham Redbacks to help improve the quality of coaching at the club and to improve himself as a coach developer and facilitator.
