This online eLearning award provides a basic and engaging introduction to the organisation of football (soccer) practices in a fun, safe environment with an emphasis on engaging with the young players of today. The award provides learners with an opportunity to discover and consider the technical and social support that we, as coaches, can provide to our players, discussing various practical aspects. These include: the importance of area size, practice transitions, progressions and regressions, as well as ensuring the learner takes a closer look at themselves, their role as a coach, and how they currently share the messages they provide players. Please note: This particular award is only available to international students, and is not for students partaking in the domestic Welsh coaching pathway. Please refer to the International course section of the FAQ page on this website for further information.
