Following on from its successful launch at Valley Parade last year, and its follow-up event at Elland Road, Sheffield United’s Brammal Lane Stadium is the next destination for the Creating and Developing Coaches initiative.

The networking event aims to provide a platform for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) coaches, or personnel working with under-represented groups, to form relationships with football’s key stakeholders in the South Yorkshire region. This event targets both aspiring and current coaches who wish to either break into the game, or further develop their skills, knowledge and contacts.

Creating and Developing Coaches, formed and developed by Leeds Beckett University in partnership with the FA, aims to provide a space where under-represented groups can highlight barriers, put forward aims and aspirations, learn of development opportunities, and forge relationships with key individuals and organisations.

A number of key South Yorkshire organisations have confirmed their attendance for the Brammal Lane event, 31 July. These include Sheffield and Hallamshire FA, Sheffield United Community Foundation, Football Unites Racism Divides (FURD), among others.  

Attendees of previous Creating and Developing Coaches have benefited from securing links with local professional clubs, while other participants have taken advantage of coaching qualification courses offered at discount rates.

Creating and Developing Coaches is proud to work in partnership with experienced football coaches who work in the professional and grassroots game as well as influential organisations such as County FA’s, Black and Asian Coaches Association (BACA), Sporting Equals, Kick It Out, and Yorkshire Sport Foundation. Our partners aim to offer their guidance, help and support for the attending coaches.  

Although this free event is open for all to attend, Creating and Developing Coaches is specifically tailored to understand and meet the aspirations of football’s under-represented communities.
