When my son was six years old he decided he wanted to play football. That was music to my ears in being a massive football lover and I was so excited to take him to his first training session. I can honestly say that after four seasons at St Helens I have only missed four of his games! At the end of the under 8's season we lost our manager after his daughter was signed to Sheffield United but I took the plunge and was more than happy to step up. During his under nine season I undertook my FA level one coaching badge and I am so pleased to say that I fell in love with coaching, I am ready to take on my level two!
My intention in coaching is to go all the way towards hopefully a UEFA B qualification. The FA are very supportive of females in football and the love and passion that I have for the game is able to flourish under their care. I am part of a female mentoring scheme with the Lincolnshire FA and so the support is there if you too if you wanted to get into coaching. With that in mind I am pleased to announce that a female only level one course is now available.
The things I get out of football and coaching a team are extremely rewarding. It is like having 10 more sons, they bring me such pride and joy and I will always support anyone wanting to coach male or female. If you would like more information or want to book onto the course please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like a chat or more information about becoming a female football coach I will be at the L.I.S.A Night event on 20th October at Sincil Bank. Further information is also shown below.
