Suffolk FA Coaches Academy


The 2017-18 season will see the Suffolk FA Coaches Academy moves into its third season.

Specifically for an exclusive number of coaches within the county of Suffolk, the Academy will offer a number of bespoke CPD, coaching support and a variety of benefits for the undergraduates.

This is a recognised programme within the Suffolk Football Community and is nationally unique.

From 2015-2019, 80 coaches will be part of a two-year programme designed to support and develop the very best coaches within Suffolk.

In order to liaise regularly and update the Suffolk Football Community on various events, the Suffolk Coaching Network has its own dedicated twitter page.

This will act as a forum and a network for coaches to discuss, connect and explore coaching.
