Get into Coaching
Take your first steps on the coaching pathway
Have you ever thought you'd make a good football coach? Are you looking for a way to stay involved in football? Think you could develop and motivate players?
The FA Level 1 is the first coaching course and 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. There are also specialist goalkeeping and futsal coaching courses.
Check out the full pathway and plan your progression here.
Coaches working with junior football teams are required to have a minimum FA Level 1 coaching qualification. Those working with adult teams are not required to have a qualification but it is highly recommended and will make coaching much easier and more rewarding.
You can book on to any of Herefordshire FA upcoming courses by visiting the development & courses page on our website. Just browse the courses and click on the title of the course you're interested in. More information will be available as well as a link to book on to the next course available.
We are always adding to our coach education programme; just because a course isn't on offer at the moment doesn't mean it won't be soon. If you are looking for a specific course you can always register your interest with us and we will let you know if it becomes available.
