COURSE DETAILS

The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football will help you develop your players by designing practices that encourage decision-making, while meeting their technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social needs.

Football is filled with complex decision-making scenarios, so designing relevant game-like practices with plenty of decision-making opportunities is crucial. They ensure that players are able to practice and prepare for competition.

This internationally recognised qualification will develop your ability to look at the players you work with and explore how you can help develop them by designing practices that encourage decision-making, while meeting their technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social needs.

It will help you understand the demands of the game and how to meet the needs of players as they build a deeper understanding of their various roles and responsibilities within the team.

The course of learning is made up of 18 guided learning, face-to-face workshops covering a range of topics linked to the England DNA, split into four blocks of learning, that cover the areas of How We Play, The Future Player, How We Coach and How We Support.

You will also receive three support visits in between the blocks of learning to develop you in your own coaching environment.
