About the course

Do you have a passion for wanting to develop players, help them understand more about the game and embrace a love for football? The Introduction to Coaching Football course is a great place to start.

Whether you are currently coaching a team or looking to get into coaching, this course will help you create a safe, fun, and positive football environment.

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.

We will focus on the player, the game, and you as a coach.  You will learn from our coach developers who will share their experiences and knowledge on weekly webinar broadcasts. You will also connect with like-minded people via our coaching community to explore and share your stories while gaining advice and support throughout the course.

To pass Introduction to Coaching Football, 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, and you will be given 12-months from your start date to complete the course. Check out the structure below to find out more about what's in store.
