"I loved playing football but knew my time playing was coming to the end. I wanted to find a way to stay in the game and saw the SHCFA Level 1 advertised. The course was fantastic and gave me so much knowledge and confidence. I now coach a U10 girls team and have found a new love for coaching and its great to still be part of the game"

Craig (Wickersley) 

"I started coaching with no qualifications but just to help out. I found it difficult and was not confident in myself around the players and the parents. The Level 1 course gave me excellent understanding of coaching including how to structure sessions, relate to my players and manage the parents. I really enjoy my coaching now and i'm looking forward to starting Level 2"

Ben (Crosspool)

"I completed my Level 1 years ago and thought it would be enough but i got bored of doing the same thing and needed something new. I decided to try the Level 2 although i felt it might be above my ability level. The tutors were great and immediately made me feel welcome. The course was really well structured and made us think about our current environment. By the end of the course i was filled with new ideas, motivation and a mentality to develop my players."

John (Armthorpe)

"The Level 2 course taught me so much about how to develop players and individuals and as a group. I use the things i have learnt on this course on a daily basis. I would recommend the Level 2 to anymore looking to progress."
