The Authority for this policy and its maintenance is the Majura Football Club
The Majura FC (MFC) Coach of the Year award is an opportunity for the club to celebrate and
promote thevaluable contribution coaches at all levels make each season. MFC defines worthy
coaches for this award not by how many wins or loses they have during the season, but the long-
lasting impact that they have onthe development and enjoyment of their players.
Great coaches, in the Committees opinion, are also dedicated to continual learning, mentoring
and personal growth, which is the sign of someone willing to be better each time they coach.

nomination being submitted in successive years.
A panel of three members will be drawn from the MFC committee and will form the Selection
Panel that will assess the recipient of the Award. Any MFC committee members nominatedfor
the Award in the season, are precluded from sitting on the selection panel.
If a Panel Member has a conflict of interest with any of the nominations, that conflict of interest
is tobenoted by the other members of the Panel prior to assessing nominations. The Panel
member with the conflict of interest may be removed from the process or be excluded from
assessing a nominee’s application.

requirements. Panel members may seek to view the coach ‘on the field or in training’. This is a
decision for the panelto ensure nominations (especially those too close to call) are considered
