Coaching Disabled Footballers Course

With the ever increasing number of disability football opportunities, and the growing awareness of disability football in Wiltshire we are looking for clubs and coaches to support the programme to move forward in the coming seasons.

In order to facilitate this and provide coaches with both a theoretical and practical understanding of working with players with a disability, Wiltshire FA offers the Coaching Disabled Footballers course.

Who is the course for?

The Coaching Disabled Footballers course is designed to give football coaches with a minimum FA Level 1 Coaching qualification, ideas and practices for the inclusion of disabled players in football sessions within mainstream or impairment specific sessions.
The course is six hours and covers both theory and practical elements, by the end of the workshop each participant should be able to meet the following outcomes...
