  • Show an awareness of the part Futsal can play in the development of young players.
  • Reinforce the different coaching interactions possible when coaching players.


Following days one and two of the course, there is a four - six week period where the learner can deliver, log (in their learner pack) and review sessions in the three areas (attacking, defending and counter attacking).

  • Complete all 4 days of the course.
  • Complete a minimum of 3 coaching sessions away from the course which are planned, delivered and reviewed with evidence completed in the learning journal.
  • Satisfactory delivery in a small coaching group on day 3.
