An FA Coach Mentor gives advice to a grassroots coach in Hertfordshire

FA Coach Mentor Programme

For Grassroots Football Coaches in Hertfordshire

On-the-ground grassroots support.

The FA Coach Mentor programme represents a major investment in the grassroots game and offers on-the-ground support to FA Charter Standard Clubs, leagues and target groups.

The FA sees the development of coaches as central to the development of the game, and working collaboratively accelerates learning and supports coaches’ development.

Mentoring support at a club could include:

  • Developing a whole club philosophy
  • Group coaching demonstrations
  • 1:1 coaching, match-day observation and support
  • Signposting to relevant courses and events
  • Needs analysis for individual coaches
  • Modelling of coaching sessions for individual coaches
  • Individual feedback
  • An individual learning programme

In 2016/17 the FA Coach Mentor Programme supported 9,383 coaches and 615 clubs.
