Being a Coach
The future development of BYM Academy is reliant on better coaches. From participation to senior level, we need coaches who possess the expertise, knowledge and attitude to positively affect the football and the environment with which they coach in.
Within the academy we want to inspire, educate and assist coaches along their coaching journey, whether it's teaching football in a team setting, coaching part-time or coaching football at a senior levels.
Our coaching development programmes provides a comprehensive approach to developing coaches from participation to higher level. The coach education pathway maps the learner journey from a new coach undertaking your first workshop module or course right through to the advanced qualifications required to coach at an elite level through the IFA awards. The following educate pathway diagram highlights the various programmes we deliver for our coaches across all levels.
