The Great Southern Football League Trainers Association (GSFLTA) are looking for sports trainers for the upcoming 2020 season.

The GSFLTA represent the Sports Trainers from all 10 associated football clubs in the Great Southern Football League.

The GSFL Clubs are Encounter Bay Football Club, Goolwa Port Elliot Football Club, Langhorne Creek Football Club, McLaren Football Club, Mount Compass football Club, Myponga Sellicks Football Club, Strathalbyn Football Club, Victor Harbor Football Club, Willunga Football Club and Yankalilla Football Club.

It is a rewarding way to be involved in a sporting club.

To be a trainer you must have or willing to obtain an Sports Medicine Australia Level 1 Sports Trainer qualification, paid for by the club.

Availability will be on Saturday, during the GSFL season (March-October, (approximately 9.30am to 5.30pm) and for training (Tuesday or Thursday 6pm to 7:30pm) is preferred, but negotiable

A drivers licence and access to a car is beneficial.

The role includes tasks such as strapping and massaging pre-game as well as working with the Head Trainer on injury prevention and retention for the playing group.

President of the GSFL Terry Corcoran said the league had an excellent work culture and it was a fantastic environment for the trainers to practice their skills autonomously and independently.

"Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic a number of long term trainers from a number of clubs have decided to retire as they are in the age group where they are most vulnerable, which has left a lot of clubs a little short on numbers," Terry said.

"There are many benefits of becoming a qualified Sports Trainer with the premium Country Football League and it would be a great boost to the clubs across the Fleurieu."
