The Football Coaching Life: Catherine Cannuli

Catherine Cannuli has recently been appointed as Head Coach of the W-League team at Western Sydney Wanderers, after spending a number of years as Assistant Coach following her playing career at the Club.

Cath had a terrific playing career as a junior and a 15-year-old senior at Marconi. She also played with Sydney FC, Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanders in the W-League.

Her coaching career began at Southern Districts with the Raiders before quickly adding the U14’s and eventually the Technical Director role. Catherine is open in discussing how great the Association has been in helping her grow and develop as a coach, and allowing her to juggle her coaching role at Western Sydney Wanderers to create a very large and full-on full-time role in football.

We discuss the impact that Alen Stajcic has had on her career as both a player and a coach, as well as how he helped her ‘fall back in love with the game’ after she walked away from the game and the national junior teams.

In her role as Technical Director with Southern Districts she is focussed on helping players love the game first as well as trying to fit in more games and training sessions to provide learning opportunities for players and coaches.

It becomes very evident that Catherine wants to leave a legacy for the W-League program at Wanderers, where all players, coaches and staff are full-time.

Enjoy this journey into Catherine Cannuli’s Football Coaching Life.
