This is an earlier version of the handbook participants receive when doing the FFA Grassroots Course. It provides some very useful information on how to run a training session and is designed for people who haven’t coached before.

There are a number of free football coaching resources available on the internet. A small selection of tried and tested sites are listed here. If you have a site to add please let us know!
If you are a volunteer (i.e. coach or manager) and you have a child in the team then you are not required to obtain a Blue Card.
It is desirable though that all volunteers obtain a Blue Card. These are free of charge. Please complete the application form and scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org for Club sign off and submission.
The process can take several months.
