As part of our commitment to grow the women’s and girls’ game, a ‘Female Coach Network Event’ will take place on Monday 16th April at Shrub End Community & Sports Centre in Colchester, targeting anyone currently working, or looking to work, within female football.
The event acts as a networking session to share good practice and ideas and discuss individual or group support for the future. There will be an overview of the FA Coach Mentor Programme and information will be provided about the coach education pathway as well as forthcoming CPD (Continuing Professional Development) events and resources.
There will also be a rare opportunity to observe the Essex County FA Girls Regional Talent Club (RTC) Under 10s to 16s squads in action and hear from RTC coaches and players who have progressed into England International teams.
This Female Coach Network Event is almost full, but a small number of places remain. Apply via E-Mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
