IFA to launch new Coach Development Programme
With the growth of futsal in the UK at an all time high there has never been a better time to get involved in the game, whether it be as a player, a coach or futsal technical specialist.
The International Futsal Academy already has a well established and successful Futsal and Education Programme for players, and we want to expand this success into a specific education programme for coach development. The first intake of coaching students will be academic year starting September 2019.
The three year Futsal Coaching and Education Programme will equip aspiring futsal coaches with the necessary skills, knowledge and practical opportunities, and all whilst they study towards a University degree. Students can choose from numerous 3 year BSc degrees, all delivered by Loughborough College and accredited by Loughborough University.
The programme will develop coaching and management knowledge and techniques across all areas of the game, both on court and off court, and across different player age groups.
The link below gives an overview of a generic pathway for the programme:
Parts of the programme can be individualised for each coach depending on their current levels of knowledge and experience, and their specific future career goals. Please contact us at [email protected] for further information and to discuss your specific coach development requirements.
At the IFA we are dedicated in developing the successful futsal coaches of tomorrow. As such places on the Futsal Coaching Development Programme will be limited to ensure each coach can take full advantage of the IFA’s support, resources and development opportunities.
