Students complete FA Level 1 Award in Coaching Football
Huddersfield ESEA students have recently successfully completed their 1st4Sport FA Level 1 Award in Coaching Football.
Throughout the last three months, 16 students were put through their paces, concluding with a practical coaching assessment and interview. The FA provides a series of training courses for coaches from the level one award through to the most advanced UEFA Pro Licence. The courses are packed with expert knowledge and cover all areas of player development.
The FA Level 1 course gave students an introduction to organisation and delivery of safe and enjoyable coaching sessions for players by teaching them to deliver practical drills to develop a player’s technical skills such as shooting, turning with the ball and heading. Candidates were also required to complete their FA Safeguarding, FA emergency first aid training and deliver a 20-minute session whilst being assessed by FA qualified tutors.
