FA Level 1 in Coaching Football

The first stepping-stone on The FA's core coaching pathway, this course introduces you to coaching football, working with players from U7 to open age and offers an insight into the English game - how it's played and how to support the development of future players.


The FA Level 1 is the first coaching course any prospective coach should take. It will introduce coaches to the game in England, how it's played and how you can coach better to support the development of players. After taking your level 1 there is a coaching pathway for coaches looking to progress (see the link above). There are also specialist goalkeeping and futsal coaching courses.

If there aren't any upcoming dates for the course/courses you are interested in, it doesn't mean we haven't got one planned. Contact us using the information to register your interest and we will let you know when the course is next likely to be running.

Our courses are generally open to football coaches nationwide although on particularly high demand courses, Herefordshire coaches may be prioritised. Coaches working with Herefordshire Charter Standard Clubs, or Herefordshire FA affiliated clubs may receive discounts when booking on certain courses.

Some courses may have particular pre-requisites that are mandatory for coaches to possess in order to take the course. All this information is available on the specific course information page.
