Coaching Disabled Footballers Course

Sunday 17th December 2017 being held at Middleton Leisure Centre in Leeds so I wanted to share this with you in case you or somebody you know may be interested in attending.

The course costs £35 and covers both theory and practical elements and by the end of the workshop each participant should be able to meet the following outcomes:

-       Apply and extend your existing coaching skills and experience to meet the needs of players with a range of impairments

-       Establish basic communication skills for coaching disabled footballers

-       Use appropriate terminology

-       Identify appropriate safety and medical considerations

-       Plan a wide range of coaching sessions for disabled footballers

-       Using the Inclusion Spectrum, plan your coaching sessions to include disabled players or provide alternative appropriate opportunities

-       Understand the player pathways available for disabled players including the appropriate structure for competition.
