FA Coaching Adults Level 1

Course Information:

The majority of coaches choose to begin their coaching education by attending a Level 1 coaching course, which is suitable for all Levels of coaching as the sessions can be adapted from mini soccer to youth football through to adult level.

However a number of coaches who are involved in senior clubs may prefer to attend the Adult level 1 coaching course, which concentrates on sessions specifically for coaching senior players.

These include sections on training drills (warm ups, technical sessions, skills, SSGs and cool downs), how to get the best from your players, team management (systems, strategies and player strengths) and how to keep your players happy while getting the best results.

The course will also give you an insight into effective team talks and match analysis, while also covering essential areas such as health and fitness (diet, discipline and personal training), communication on and off the pitch and motivation in training and matches.
