“I began coaching after I had an injury and instantly fell in love with it….I wanted to turn this passion into a career and decided study at ACPE in the Bachelor of Sports Coaching (Management) degree. My time at ACPE has given me a vast range of knowledge and experiences that have helped me develop as a coach. Through this I am now the Administration officer at the Liverpool FC International Academy NSW, as well as coaching in the National Premier League. My dream was to work for my favourite club one day and I am very thankful that ACPE has helped me realise that dream.” – Joshua Jacka LFC Coach and ACPE Alumni
