Coaching Support

WHEN COACHING WITH THE AFA, HELP IS ALWAYS AT HAND

The AFA is here to ensure that everyone who participates as a coach has a great experience – regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or disability, faith or age.

In this section you'll find information about support initiatives and training opportunities to help you improve as a coach, be safe in your coaching and the environments you create, and how you can access on-the-ground support when you need it.

Safeguarding and Welfare

SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY

Everyone in football has a responsibility to make our game safe and enjoyable.

This is particularly true for coaches. A coach is in a privileged position. The nature of the role means he/she can have significant influence over children and young people and develop relationships of trust with children and their parents/carers. It’s therefore important that coaches understand their safeguarding responsibilities.

Find out how The FA and Amateur FA manages safeguarding nationally and locally. You’ll also find detailed information on the game’s safeguarding strategy, and how it applies to you.
