COURSE DETAILS

Officially launching on the week commencing 14 June 2021, Introduction to Coaching Football is the perfect online football coaching course for anyone looking to take a more active role in the game.

Please Note: You will not be able to take Introduction to Coaching Football if you have not completed The FA Playmaker course. You can sign-up to become an FA Playmaker for free here.

The course blends live weekly webinars, e-learning, community support and a range of resources to provide you with the skills to coach players of all ages.  

 Much like a successful team, Introduction to Coaching Football relies on several key areas to work. By delivering the course in this way, we are able to help you create a safe, fun and positive football environment. 

Upon completion, you will gain confidence, begin developing your own style and apply what you’ve learned to become a transformational coach.  

To pass the course, you will need to work through e-learning modules, unlocking new ones each week, as well as completing a short online assessment. The e-learning can be completed in stages in your own time. 

Here’s how it works: 

When you enrol, you’ll be given exclusive access to our online coaching community, which is a place for you to share tips, discuss ideas and learn from other coaches as you work through the course. We encourage you to stay active on the community and get involved in discussions to get the most out of your experience. 

You’ll also have access to a number of useful resources, case studies and practice videos to use alongside your weekly webinars, giving you the chance to apply practical skills to real-life coaching sessions. 

The modules below need to be completed to pass the course. They are specifically designed to give you the knowledge you need to pass a quick assessment. A number of these e-learning modules include short recaps to help check your knowledge: 

-Course Introduction (10m) 
-Introduction to Disability Football (30m) 
-Respect (10m) 
-Safeguarding Children (2h) 
-Introduction to First Aid in Football (2h) 
-Assessment (10m) 

Hosted by our expert course developers, these weekly discussions will focus on some of the most important things you’ll need as a football coach: 

-Week One - Falling in Love with the Game (1h) 
-Week Two - Learning About Football (1h) 
-Week Three - Friendships in Football (1h)
