Senior footballer Josh Rogerson will be taking a break from playing in 2020 and instead has signed on to coach the La Trobe University Football Club’s U19’s program.
With a wealth of experience playing football his whole life, Josh is also studying his Masters of Teaching and has a knack for helping others learn, especially with sport and in particular AFL.
Josh has played 49 games in the Red and Black so far, and has now diverted his focus on his coaching aspirations as he recovers from a shoulder injury. Josh is particularly excited to take on the U19s coaching role this year, as it is another way for him to stay directly involved with football whilst not playing, whilst helping young footballers develop their skills, football knowledge and chemistry.
Josh has been giving back to La Trobe University FC in many ways in his tenure at the club, including 2018 Club Secretary, and now Men’s Football Operations Manager from 2019 to today.
We are excited to announce Josh Rogerson as U19s Coach and we look forward to seeing his on-field leadership transition into leadership on the sidelines.
We are now recruiting U19 Men for season 2020, if you are born after 1st July 2000 and are interested in playing football with LTUFC this year training’s are currently Monday and Wednesday 6pm at Tony Sheehan Oval (LTU). For more information regarding joining our teams visit ltufc.org/our-club/welcome-to-new-players/ and for more information regarding the U19 Men contact Josh Rogerson 0409 280 029.
