Violet Innes named Football Far North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year

October 9th, 2021

Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Violet Innes as Football Far North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year for 2021.

Violet was nominated by Byron Bay FC for her commitment and service to the club and to football.

Violet is the coach of the club’s girls under-12s team, a group she has coached for the last five years. The team started together in the inaugural girls MiniRoos pool as under-8s and have stuck together since.

The girls adore Violet and speak of her as a supportive, caring and fun person. Violet has fostered a positive and energetic environment for the girls that is reflected in their increased confidence.

Violet is also a terrific player in the Byron Bay FC women’s premier league team and she encourages the junior girls to watch the senior teams play.

“Coaching is one of the most crucial factors in the football experience for our players,” NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.

“It is important that coaches like Violet maintain the great work they are doing at Byron Bay FC so that their players develop a fondness for the game and continue to have the best football experience possible.”

Newcastle Permanent Ballina Branch Lending Manager David Parker congratulated Violet on becoming the recipient of the Football Far North Coast Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year Award.

“Newcastle Permanent is delighted to recognise the efforts and contributions made by local coaches through our community awards recognition program,” Parker said.

“Coaches like Violet play a vital role in developing the skills and attitudes of young players and it’s a pleasure to recognise her vital contribution.”
