Foundation of Light Coaching

Across our coaching department we believe in coaching with the ‘S.A.F.C.’ ethos

The Foundation of Light’s Football Development department delivers a wide range of sports coaching programmes that run before school, in-school, after school, on evenings and weekends and during the school holidays.

Across our coaching department we believe in coaching with the ‘S.A.F.C.’ ethos:

S - Skills
We use fun and effective coaching methods in a positive learning environment to develop the skills necessary for youngsters to enjoy and compete in a wide variety of sports.

A - Attitude
Positive encouragement, effective communication and being a team-player are all parts of the attitude development we deliver that we believe can make an impact in the lives of young people not only on the playing field but in their education, home life and broader social life.

F - Finding your level
Key to our ethos is ensuring that every youngster finds the level of play that is suitable for them. We have highly developed Player Pathways that accommodate those who just want to have fun, gifted and talented players who can be referred to the Academy, and all others in between. The Foundation of Light's Player Pathways ensure that youngsters get the most out of sport.

C - Community
We believe that all the members of our Community should have the opportunity to take part whenever possible. Our courses, sessions and tournaments are all responsibly priced and we strive to deliver across a wide geographical area to make ourselves accessible to everybody.
