A wide range of football coaching content is being shared online in The FA’s ‘Boot Room’ to help support individuals to incorporate innovative practices into their sessions, developing both themselves and their players.
Grassroots Essex coaches planning training programmes to comply with FA guidelines can access interesting articles, interviews, ideas and resources via the portal. Recommended by our Coach Education Department, the Boot Room also features courses and additional learning (Continuing Professional Development):
* In the Coaching section, more than 90 sessions, guides and top tips have been published which are all easily searchable. Select a topic you’re interested in and see relevant articles, sessions and guides.
* The Interviews area has insights from over 40 of the biggest names across football. While in the ‘Courses’ section, you can browse FA learning opportunities and find the next step on your coaching journey.
* There’s also a dedicated news page for coaching updates, and a new home for support initiatives such as the FA Coach Mentor programme, coach bursaries and Elite Coach Menteeship opportunities.
* The England DNA is also on the Boot Room. It’s easier than ever before to discover the coaching and playing principles which support all England teams.
