THE FA ENGLAND DNA WORKSHOPS (5-11): MASTERING THE BASICS – 21 SEPTEMBER 2020
Hosted at LCFA Sefton between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on 21 September 2020, in this workshop we explore the key principles of the Foundation Phase. We look at the best ways to engage younger players and how to help them develop their skills on the ball. 

However before we start working with our players we need to know our players. Why do they play? What do they enjoy? What is their relationship with the sport? Once we know the answers to these questions we can introduce the right games an challenges for our team and tailor our sessions.

During this workshop we will explore these ideas in the classroom and through practical activities and games with children on the pitch.

THE FA ENGLAND DNA WORKSHOP (12-16): INTELLIGENT INDIVIDUAL DEFENDING – 20 OCTOBER 2020
Taking place at Simpson Sports Ground on 20 October 2020 between 6pm and 9pm, in this workshop we focus on 1v1 defending. This is a priority development area for every age group and level of the game.

We need to shift the focus away from only coaching team shape and positioning, to sessions that encourage the development of individual defensive skills, attributes and abilities. Players in this age group are still mastering the technical aspects of defending as well as developing tactical understanding, and that’s what our coaching should reflect.

During this workshop we will look at how we can help develop all players to be more confident and effective when out of possession. We will examine the different technical attributes required to defend in 1v1 situations, transferable individual defending skills, position specific skills and how to inspire positive decision making.

THE FA LEVEL 3 IN COACHING FOOTBALL INSIGHTS WORKSHOPS: WHO WE ARE – 25 NOVEMBER 2020
Taking place at Liverpool County FA on 25 November 2020 between 6.30pm and 9.30pm, discover how your philosophy shapes all aspects of your coaching. Everything we do as coaches should be underpinned by our values, beliefs and philosophy. This ranges from your behaviour, session plans, environment and your approach to player development. 

In The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football coaches are tasked with sharing and critically reviewing their philosophy, to determine whether their actions and behaviours are true to their identity. This workshop forms a link to that session by introducing the different reflective strategies you can start to use to analyse your learning environment, practices and your approach to player development. It also shows ways you can reflect and adapt the core values and beliefs of your philosophy, depending on how these are shaping and impacting your day-to-day coaching.

FAQs

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit our national CPD events page here.

If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing .

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season
