FA Youth Award Module 2

Coaching Support

Football is for all

The FA is here to ensure everyone who participates has a great experience – regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or disability, faith or age.

In this section you'll find information about support initiatives and training opportunities to help you improve as a coach, be safe in your coaching and the environments you create, and access on-the-ground support when you need it.

If you're new to coaching/management and you need something to help you get started, you can also download The FA's Guide to Managing in Grassroots Football.



The FA Licensed Coaches Club is a programme set up by The FA to help develop coaching in English Football with the concept of Coach Licensing. 

Its aim is to increase the quality of coaching to players within football in England. It will ensure that coaches are fully qualified, give them access to additional coaching tools, increase their coaching ability and provide them with opportunities to develop and progress in their coaching journey.
