Online Coaching Programme

Bringing our coaching community together

bringing our coaching community together.

With no football activities or education courses currently taking place, we have introduced the Online Coaching Programme.

Starting on Thursday 26th March we will be bringing you four free weekly online sessions for coaches to participate in to continue their development as coaches. As things stand, we have scheduled the sessions up until at least the beginning of May and we will continue to monitor government advice as to whether we extend this further.

In offering Saturday morning sessions we hope this will provide an alternative to the usual football routine that participants might usually undertake. All sessions will be accessed for free via a live online webinar.

June & July 2020

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our webinars to date and to those who completed the recent survey. We have planned the Programme for June & July based on the survey results with full schedule below.

Whilst the live sessions are free to access, we do need to make sure we have an idea of numbers. We'll also need to be able to get in touch in case there is any change to the schedule or if the links to the live sessions change (all links will be added regularly as we have them and joining links will work roughly 5-10mins before the scheduled start time, so remember to check back before the sessions starts!)

With that in mind, we'd would encourage all Coaches wanting to join a session to use the 'Sign up' link below wherever possible. This will ensure we offer the smoothest possible service for all.
