Coaching Intro – How to plan, create and run sessions that make Football Fun!
For Junior Team Coaches & those who have never Coached before as an intro to Coaching basics.

The 3 hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN.
The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.
