Having nine coaches at FA Level 2 is a testament of the coaches commitment and the personal time they are prepared to put in to develop our boys and the club which is setting standards at a community and national level.
As part of the 3 month course all coaches are required to submit a presentation. An example of the presentations submitted can be found here.
We would like to thank the FA tutor, Rahsid Abba, for his support throughout the 3 months.
The coaches and their tutor celebrated at then end of the course with a well deserved dinner.
The FA Level 2 in Coaching Football leads to the achievement of the 1st 4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Football qualification.
In order to understand the coaching of players, coaches need to understand themselves, their players and the game itself. This course will support our coaches along this process both on-course and in their own coaching environment.
The course is underpinned by the ethos of allowing the players to feel included, empowered and to be able to make mistakes. It is about designing relevant game-like practices with plenty of decision-making that enables the players to practice in an environment that’s positive and enjoyable.
As a FA Level 2 football coach, SJFA coaches will be able to plan, deliver and evaluate a series of linked and progressive football coaching sessions independently.
The course will cover key issues in coaching while putting the players and their learning at the centre of the choices that coaches make. It will help SJFA to reflect on, realise the impact of, and justify the decisions they make while encouraging a long-term view on player development. The course will examine what effective and great practice looks like in training and competition, right the way through the player’s journey from under 7 to open age, across the various formats of the game, helping our coaches to consider the age, ability, maturity and experience of the players in their care.
The course of learning is made up of 20 guided learning, face-to-face workshops covering a range of topics linked to the England DNA, split into three blocks of learning:
Block 1 – How We Coach,
Block 2 – How We Support and The Future Player,
Block 3 – How We Play
The course is an intensive course –
145 hours (total qualification time) / 73 hours (guided learning) and demonstrates once again the commitment of our coaches.
Block 1 – How We Coach
Block 2 – How WE Support the Coach & Future Player
Block 3 –How We Play
