Chris commented ‘It helps you really understand the motivation behind why children play football, what they and their parents are expected, and how we as coaches can provide a safe and enjoyable environment.’
The course gives you an insight into developing the 5 ‘C’ – control, commitment, concentration, communication and confidence through coaching.
The course is available for any licensed FA coach and can be found through the brand new FA learning portal. Have a look here for more information.
He has recently completed the FA Coaching Disabled Footballers course and is awaiting his certificate. Chris is half way through the FA Futsal Level 2 course, with the assessment at the beginning of November 2015. He is also awaiting his assessment for the FA Advanced Youth Award and FA Youth Module 3 – Developing The Player award, which he hopes will be done before the end of 2015. His Youth Module 3 log book was recently reviewed and he received great feedback stating ‘it showed a high level of knowledge.’
When asked what his plans for 2016 were he replied ‘ I have always wanted to apply for the UEFA B license and it is something I have wanted to do for a long time. Hopefully now I can meet the requirements for the course, but I know it is very difficult to get a place.’
What can we say, busy coach!
