How to get your FAW coaching badges totally funded by Sport Wales

If you’d love to be a coach but the cost of courses is holding you back, it will be worth taking five minutes to read this



Have you dreamed of doing one of our coaching courses but thought it was too expensive?

Dream no more because here's how you can get on them for free.

It's all thanks to the Sport Wales Community Chest grant that is available to any affiliated club in Wales and supports all Level 1 and Level 2 Coach Education courses, which includes our Football Leaders, First Aid, Safeguarding, Goalkeepers, Futsal and FAW C Certificate.

The Community Chest is provided to all councils to manage from Sport Wales, so every club can access up-to £1500 each year for things like:

• Starting new teams

• Equipment

• Coach Education




Hang on, are you saying I can do any of those courses and pay nothing?

Yes. In a nutshell, if you are a coach affiliated to any of our clubs, you should never have to put your hand in your pocket for any of these certificates.

Come on, what's the catch?

Seriously, the only thing you have to do is fill in this online form and it takes about 10 minutes.

Give it a try.



So what happens then?

Once you've submitted your details, they go to your local council, who have a panel who grant these things. Then all the required documentation, and of course the cheque, are passed on to your club.

What are you waiting for?
