Summary

I have been coaching for over 10 years, working with male, female and all-abilities football and futsal players. I am also a secondary school teacher where I run the football program as well as teach Economics, Commerce and Humanities. I have worked in coach education for both the federation and at the club level as a coach educator and technical director respectively. I am passionate about sport and am eager to continuously improve football in this country by helping footballers reach their potential as well as improving myself to be a better coach.

About Coach

My philosophy is based around player-centred learning. Focusing on developing a relationship with the player to then create an environment where they can improve, is important when trying to help a player reach their potential.

My youth football was played in Japan and Australia before I transitioned into coaching. Here are some of the highlights on my coaching journey.
2014-2017: Box Hill United (NPL Mens Assistant, Assistant TD (Miniroos), NPL 12's-18's, Miniroos, SAP Leader)
2017: Football Victoria TIDC (Assistant Coach 2005 born players)
2017-2019: Melbourne City Football Club (U18 Assistant Coach, U16 Development Squad Lead Coach, NPL Junior academy)
2020-present: FC Bulleen Lions (Senior NPLW Assistant Coach)
2013-2020: FV State Futsal Head Coach

A 1-on-1 session is tailored based on the players needs usually in consultation with the player or parent prior to the session.

A team session varies depending on the level of the team. An example of this at the NPL level can found at the following link: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AkCb1PWTTzRPvUlJ3oh9NpujxRsH

Excellent session with all aspects of training aimed at point of need. Clear communication, feedback and encouragement to extend skill level and provide high expectations. Varied drills which build strong skill set in close ball skills and easy application into game based play. Improvement has been outstanding . Kogulan also provides direction on areas of practice for beyond sessions. Thanks for a great session.

Excellent session with clear expectations and high level communication to get the best out of a player. Drills are challenging to extend skill set and have produced direct impact on my playing ability.

I really enjoyed Kogu’s session, I think he is a great coach. He pushed me to my limits. He showed me what I needed to work on and I learnt beneficial drills that I hadn’t done before. I definitively would like to continue working with him. The only downside was the pitch, otherwise I would have given him 100/100.
