COACH EDUCATION DURING COVID-19
Your questions answered:
Coaching and Referee Courses:
Hampshire FA are still unable to deliver any coach or referee education courses at this time due to lockdown restrictions affecting both practice and the venues that we work with. At this point we have no additional information on when courses will be available again and await further guidance from the government. This applies to all coaching, refereeing, first aid and face to face safeguarding/child welfare courses.
First Aid Qualifications:
If you are already a qualified coach and your First Aid qualification is due for renewal you will need to wait for lockdown restrictions to be lifted and course delivery to recommence. Please note that holding a valid first aid qualification is considered best practice and a requirement for Charter Standard, it is not a requirement for affiliation and will therefore not affect this process. For Charter Standard, coaches/clubs will be given sufficient flexibility to update qualifications when we return to normal practice.
Safeguarding Children Re-Certification:
If you are already a qualified coach and your Safeguarding Children qualification is due for renewal you can do this online here.
