Stepping over the Sidelines
Stepping over the Sidelines is a local workshop is designed to offer mums, female guardians, helpers, assistants and young leaders the opportunity to have a first look at how you might be able to get involved in football.
The workshop also gives a flavour of the next steps for anyone who might like to consider getting involved. That could include:
Our EE Playmaker by England Football course
Our Introduction to Coaching Football course
Being more involved at your local club, recreation session or Weetabix Wildcats venue, perhaps as a coach, assistant, helper, or volunteer.
Women's Coach Development Groups
This group is a fantastic opportunity for female coaches of any level, not only to network with other female coaches across the county but to have access to specific coach development workshops both face-to-face and online.
Being a part of the group give you the chance to meet other female coaches who you can share you experiences with, explain your coaching journey (no matter what stage you’re at), create new ideas together, all with the support of England Football Learning.
You can join this group at any point, whether you have just started coaching your child as a volunteer, or whether you’re coaching professionally! This group is for you and there is tailored support for your level.
The group is completely flexible to you as well! Sessions take place on various days/evenings to suit everyone as we know not everybody trains on the same nights and everyone has other family commitments.
Community Champions support and grow the grassroots game and support new volunteers to get involved.
From helping female coaches build their confidence and step over the sidelines to exploring opportunities outside of weekly football sessions, a Community Champion is an individual who inspires others to improve and enjoy delivering football.

England Football Learning's mentoring offer exists to support, encourage & challenge coaches to manage their own learning within their own specific context, helping them maximise their potential, develop their skills, recognise their attributes; and all towards them becoming the coach & person they want to be.
Our mentors provide one-to-one face-to-face support for female coaches to break down barriers, improve their skills and support players. If you'd like to receive support from a mentor this season, you can register your interest.
