Course overview of the Community Pathway
The Community pathway is aimed at coaches who prefer to coach (mainly) at the Amateur level. Whilst sometimes not as ambitious as those who are on the Advanced pathway they still seek assistance in the preparation, organization and conduct of safe, age related training sessions. The exciting part about having two pathways is that there is now a course for all coaches at whatever level they choose. Furthermore at Community level coaches can now choose where they wish to enter the pathway. For example instead of the old method of having to attend the Junior Course followed by a Youth Course (if you gained a advanced pass) before enrolling on the Senior Course, which is the vertical approach, coaches can now enter at the level appropriate to the age group that they will be coaching ( horizontal approach)
Grass Roots Coaching Certificate - for coaches coaching up to u/7
This Three (3) hour course provides the novice coach with the necessary tools to create a fun environment for the players, one in which they can learn to play with the ball and hopefully build a lifelong love of the game.
Junior License Course
A fourteen (14) hour course has been designed to help those who are training players aged between 8 and 11 and provides ideas on how to create a positive learning environment for those players. As the field sizes and the number of players increase slightly so do the challenges for our youngsters, for example: passing / controlling the ball, movement and decision making. The coach at this level is encouraged to conduct meaningful training sessions that will help develop the players decision making process so they can start to solve problems for themselves without having to rely entirely on the coach. On this course the coaches are provided with helpful hints on using the questioning / challenging technique to assist their young players in decision making as well as some basic information regarding positioning in relation to the ball so that the p[layers can gain a wider understanding of the game’s requirements.
