Support for New Essex Grassroots Coaches in Early 2022
Our Coach Development Team have planned a series of online drop-in sessions to provide casual support and useful information for grassroots coaches.
The sessions are ideal for those working with a new youth team or individuals who have recently begun their coaching journey. Open to both qualified and unqualified coaches, the sessions will last no longer than 45 minutes, and will include top tips for training and matchdays plus information about coaching qualifications, as well as an open ‘question and answer’ session.
The following dates have now been confirmed for drop-in sessions, with bookings invited below:
Thursday 27th January (Book Online)
Friday 4th February (Book Online)
Thursday 3rd March (Book Online)
Friday 11th March (Book Online)
The new Coach Development Programme has welcomed plenty of positive feedback from those attending ‘On the Pitch’ workshops and ‘In Focus’ events. There are plenty more opportunities for coaches to access support countywide, through various workshops to suit those working with players of all ages and abilities. Dates are currently available by following this link.
It is also recommended to visit the England Football Learning YouTube channel, which contains a wide variety of ideas to support coaches in their role, as well as our own channel, with playlists dedicated to coaching content. You can also access information by following @EssexCoaches and @EssexCountyFA on Twitter and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
