FA Level 1

    •  
This course provides an introduction to the organisation and safe delivery of enjoyable football sessions for young players and is the first step to becoming a recognised football coach.

The Level 1 Award in Coaching Football is ideal for anyone wanting to further their knowledge and gain a nationally recognised qualification. Whilst the Level 1 is applicable to all age groups, it is specific to those working with players aged 5 – 16 years old. Students and Young Leaders will also find this a very useful stepping stone to vocational courses relating to football such as, sports therapy, administration and refereeing.

  • 8 Hours Practical
  • 8 Hours Theory
  • 3 Hours FA Safeguarding Children in Football
  • 3 hours FA Emergency First Aid
  • 8 hours Assessment (including a 15 minute practical assessment)

The course will introduce some key aspects including:

  • Player and coach development
  • The FA's Respect Programme
  • Laws of the Game
  • An introduction to the FA's Long Term Player Development Model
  • An introduction to Football for All

This qualification will provide you with the tools to coach young players.
