Providing A Coach

Mentoring A Coach

 

We can help you to create a legacy of high quality coaching for your club. We are able to provide mentors who can support individual coaches to build their confidence and to get the most out of every session all while in the comfort of their own environment.

What Would A Mentoring Programme Look Like?

STEP ONE

INITIAL SELF REVIEW

 An opportunity for honest self-judgment to get the most out of the programme.

Coaches will reflect on a range of attributes involved in the delivery of football sessions

STEP TWO

PERSONALISED DEVELOPMENT PLAN

 Mentors will use the initial self review and will liaise with the coach to determine what will be focused on during the programme

STEP THREE

OBSERVE MENTOR
DELIVERED SESSIONS

Providing an opportunity for coaches to observe how to deliver effective football sessions. Mentors will interact with coaches throughout to explain thought processes and decisions made. 

STEP FOUR

COACHES INCREASE SESSION DELIVERY

Beginning with warm-ups, coaches will put into practice the skills observed and discussed with their mentor.

Mentors will feedback at the end of each session and will provide guidance as to how to make progress.

Coaches will progress to delivering full sessions.

STEP FIVE

FINAL SELF REVIEW

Coaches will again complete a self review to assess their ability to deliver football sessions while reflecting on the progress made over the  programme.

The mentor will create a final reflection of the coach's progress which can be used to evidence professional development via a graph.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM MENTORING?

Just about anyone!

Everyone can always find new things to learn, new skills to pick up and new strategies to have a go at.

Coaches who might particularly benefit may include:

  • Coaches with no formal training
     

  • New Coaches
     

  • Coaches who would like to try new ideas

CPD Events

 

It can be hard for coaches to find the time to focus on their own development but it is so important for all of us to continue pushing to do better and to try new things. This is why we run tailored CPD training events to help build a legacy of high quality coaching in your club.

Topics Could Include...

Managing Behaviour
Knowing how to develop players

Creating safe, fun & engaging sessions

How to include goalkeepers in your sessions

Meeting the needs of different players in a session

As well as the above ideas, we can also tailor a CPD event specifically to the needs of your club with the knowledge of FA qualified coaches to help you to support your coaches & players.
