Dean Schmidt

assistant COACH

Dean has just started his coaching journey and as an Assistant Coach with Edgewater-Woodvale Junior Football Club. Although passionate footballer with years of experince until a badly broken leg took him out of the game in his early 30s he would consider himself more of a cricketer than a footballer. Dean brings a wealth of knowledge on the principals of training and application on game day. He likes to encourage and get everyone involved and believes that the best method of growth is to look at the positives of a player and develop those talents as well as ensuring development in other areas of the game too.
