Philosophy & Vision

Philosophy

Football and netball are games that are designed to be a competition between two equal teams and only one ball, where the primary objective is to score more goals than the other team. However; the underlying purpose of football and netball is enjoyment – without enjoyment, there is no purpose.
People enjoy football and netball for many reasons, but fundamentally it is the experiences and challenges that will define their level of enjoyment. Although we may strive for a positive end result (i.e. to win) it is not the end result that defines your enjoyment.


Vision

Regardless of age, gender or ability, Rangers will always strive to provide a rewarding football or netball experience and environment that is enjoyed by the whole North Epping Community and beyond.
We believe a rewarding football or netball experience begins with providing a well organised service, with the appropriate resources in order to develop our members (players, coaches) to become the best they can be at the game they love.


Coaching Philosophy

The coach is the link to the past, present and future and without the coach; the team cannot see where it has been, where it is now, and where it is going. If the coach is lost, the team is lost.
The job of the coach is to provide inspiration, encouragement, guidance, knowledge and enjoyment.
This is done by creating a safe, interesting, challenging, environment, where playing football or netball teaches football and netball and winning is a mere consequence, not the sole objective.
A strong “team” approach is essential to maintaining a positive team culture and cohesion.
