Last Call for Practical FA Level 1 in Coaching Football Courses

From the new year (2021) there will no longer be any practical Level 1 courses available in the whole country, as The FA moves the course online from April 2021 – so this is the last chance to meet new colleagues and get practical education for a qualification.

IgniteDue to COVID-19 restrictions, virtually no courses have run for the last six months and with strict guidelines on staging courses before the end of the year has meant there are very few about nationally.

Ignite Sports, in conjunction with Oxford City FC, supported by Oxfordshire FA, are staging a number of courses at the Oxford City FC ground in Oxford.

The courses will be delivered by FA Affiliate tutors to ensure you get the best experience on your first step in coaching.

There are no pre-requisites apart from each day you must self-assess yourself for symptoms and not show if you have any, but notify the club or tutor of your situation so they can advise other candidates.

You will also have your temperature taken on arrival and during the day.
