Grassroots Football Certificate

This course is FREE, and done in less than 3 hours, and is a great introduction to coaching!

Learn how to making training enjoyable and engaging for your players so they get lots of touches of the ball and have fun.

We give you tips on how to start quickly, and keep kids engaged so they don’t become distracted or disruptive.

This course is also ideal for parents who are not yet coaching and would simply like to gain a greater understanding of the concepts and practises of grassroots football to better support their kids.

It is a practical session where parents and coaches are involved in activities, as we set up and demonstrate sample training activities suitable for this age group, we look at how to make training fun and enjoyable for kids, and how to set up an environment where kids will best learn the game.

Skill Training Certificate

This course is $68 and completed over 14 hours

This is the next level up from the Grassroots Football Certificate and targets slightly older age groups, while the focus is still very much on enjoyment, it moves more into player development and skill acquisition.

We set up and demonstrate activities that are based on building core skills including First Touch, Striking the ball, running with the ball, and 1 v 1, as these core skills make up 95% of actions required by an outfield player.

Coaches will learn how to set up a training session using: Skill Introduction > Skill Training > Skill game to make sure that players are learning and developing in game based activities.

This course may also be suitable for coaches of 14-17 year old players who haven’t done a coaching course before, before attending a Game Training Certificate course.
