Details of Foundation of Light initiative.
The Foundation of Light Coaches’ Clinic is an initiative set up to support and develop grassroots football coaching, ensuring that coaches get more out of coaching and players get more out of playing.
This programme is delivered in partnership with the Durham County FA with the majority of events receiving FA Licensed Coaches' Club accreditation to support local coaches' CPD requirements. The initiative combines workshops, giving coaches the chance to learn from some of the sport’s best, with online support and discussion through the @FoLCoachClinic account on social network site Twitter.
Workshop’s are completely free to attend (although places must be pre-booked) and each will address challenges facing today’s coaches covering a range of topics such as attacking and defending as a unit, managing player behaviour and structuring sessions to give all of your players the best chance to improve.
The initiative’s Twitter account will be used to spark debate amongst coaches and hopes to create a community through which coaches can share best practice.
The Foundation of Light is committed to the development of grassroots sport and ensuring that all who participate have a chance to realise their potential whilst enjoying themselves in the process.
