Community Coach Education

The Community pathway is aimed at coaches who prefer to coach (mainly) at the Amateur level.

Whilst sometimes not as ambitious as those who are on the Advanced pathway, they still seek assistance in the preparation, organization and conduct of safe, age related training sessions.

Courses are designed to mix the practical with the theoretical to give a solid basis for teaching young footballers. A number of courses are available and administered by FFT, including;

AIA Vitality MiniRoos Coaching Certificate

– for coaches coaching players up to 9 years of age.

This three hour course provides the novice coach with the necessary tools to create a fun environment for the players, one in which they can learn to play with the ball and hopefully build a lifelong love of the game.
