The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football

COURSE DETAILS

The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football will help you develop your players by designing practices that encourage decision-making, while meeting their technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social needs.

Football is filled with complex decision-making scenarios, so designing relevant game-like practices with plenty of decision-making opportunities is crucial. They ensure that players are able to practice and prepare for competition.

This internationally recognised qualification will develop your ability to look at the players you work with and explore how you can help develop them by designing practices that encourage decision-making, while meeting their technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social needs.

It will help you understand the demands of the game and how to meet the needs of players as they build a deeper understanding of their various roles and responsibilities within the team.
