Coaching Course aims and objectives
This internationally delivered qualification, awarded by Esprit Football Academy will take the learner on a journey through the core components of the Intermediate course, helping them to begin shaping or refining their own coaching philosophy.
The Esprit Football Coaching Academy course leads to the achievement of the
Intermediate Certificate in Coaching Football qualification.
In order to understand the coaching of players, coaches need to understand themselves, their players and the game itself. This course will support learners along this process both on-course and in their own coaching environment.
The course is underpinned by the ethos of allowing the players to feel included,
empowered and to be able to make mistakes. It is about designing relevant game-like practices with plenty of decision-making that enables the players to practice in an
environment that’s positive and enjoyable. This course is designed to prepare learners for employment as a football coach with the ability to put these key ideas into practice. As a FFCA Inter- mediate Certificate football coach, learners will be able to plan, deliver and
evaluate a series of linked and progressive football coaching sessions independently.
This course will cover key issues in coaching while putting the players and their learning at the centre of the choices that coaches make. It will help learners to reflect on, realise the impact of, and justify the decisions they make while encouraging a long-term view on player development. The course will examine what effective and great practice looks like in training and competition, right the way through the player’s journey from under 7 to open age, across the various formats of the game, helping coaches to consider the age, ability, maturity and experience of the players in their care.
The coaching course of learning is made up of; face-to-face workshops and practical delivery covering a range of topics leading to an Intermediate Certificate qualification.
