If you are coaching in these age groups you will find the information on this course invaluable. The course is largely practical in nature so you will get to experience first-hand some of the latest methods and techniques used in the FFA National Curriculum. You will also receive FFA recognised accreditation and an opportunity to meet fellow coaches with similar objectives. Also courses will be presented by Jon Long (SSFA Football Manager).

Much of these courses are practical and most of the work is done in groups and the main role of the presenter is to ensure each candidate understands the course – we will help you to get your coaching qualification in a friendly inclusive environment.
