Spending time reflecting on your coaching is one of the most valuable ways of improving your longer term developments, for both yourself as a coach and for your players. 

This workshop introduces the different reflective strategies you can start to use to create safe, fun and enjoyable football experiences for your players. 

It also shows how you can use the plan - do - review and long term player development models to reflect on the impact your coaching behaviours can have on your players' development. 

Once you have looked at how you can reflect on yourself as a coach, our tutors will take you through building a picture of a philosophy for your club that embeds your coaching values.

CONTINUING YOUR COACHING JOURNEY (ONLINE EVENT)

Tuesday 18 May 2021 - 7pm-8pm

Discover how you philosophy shapes all aspects of your coaching. 

Everything we do as coaches should be underpinned by our value, beliefs and philosophy. This ranges from your behaviour, session plans, environment and your approach to player development. 

As you advance as a coach, you'll be tasked with sharing and critically reviewing your philosophy, to determine whether your actions and behaviours are true to your identity. 

This workshop introduces the different reflective strategies you can start to use to analyse your learning environment, practices and your approach to player development. It also shows ways you can reflect and adapt the core values and beliefs of your philosophy, depending on how these are shaping and impacting your day-to-day coaching.

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season.

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit the national CPD events page.
