Coaching set up-17


Are you finding your role within the game? Do you know what you want to be? Better yet, do you know the impact you could have. 

Be part of a fantastic legacy to see the development & sustainability of our beautiful game. 

The grassroots game is the foundation, some may say even the most important part. Just think, you too could be part of an exceptional network of people, who are all striving to give and be the best they can be for others. That generosity, enthusiasm and passion, means a great deal to someone else. YOU are so much more than a volunteer. Find your potential in the game and be part of the legacy.

Below are some of the roles that you can get involved in and a brief explanation of them.
Steve Yeomans
Being part of a team can be fantastic support. Not only football-related either, but being part of a network, a cohesive workforce where you feel like you belong. You don't realise it but when you go through some hard times, there are people around you to see you through and you end up seeing exactly the impact it has had on one's life as well as your own. That is one of the amazing things about football. You're a team. You are one"
