FA Coach Mentor Programme

Berks & Bucks FA are pleased to announce they have 7 Coach Mentors appointed to them by the FA, who are each able to deliver 50 hours of mentoring to 14 selected FA Charter Standard Development or Community Clubs.

The FA Coach Mentor Programme is a major investment in the grassroots game and offers on-the-ground support to FA Charter Standard Clubs and coaches.
Mentoring support at a club could include:

  • Developing a whole club philosophy 
  • Group coaching demonstrations 
  • 1:1 coaching, match-day observation and support 
  • Signposting to relevant courses and events 
  • Needs analysis for individual coaches 
  • Modelling of coaching sessions for individual coaches 
  • Individual feedback 
  • An individual learning programme

To sign up to the programme clubs must ensure their coaches are open and keen to develop their knowledge. At the end of the programme, clubs who have received support will be able to start a legacy of positive coaching within their club. The scheme is very flexible, our FA Club Mentors will take the opportunity to work with 2 or more coaches within a club, these coaches should influence/take their club’s coaching forward in future seasons. 

Please find attached The BBFA Coach Mentoring Brochure in the Documents section below for more information.
