Introducing Liverpool County FA's Futsal Mentoring Group

Practical mentoring and access to enable local coaches to engage with Futsal on Merseyside.

Liverpool County FA’s mentoring team is delighted to reveal that it is to establish a Futsal Mentoring Group, aimed at supporting local coaches keen on developing their knowledge of Futsal.

Through the Futsal Mentoring Group, coaches will be provided with opportunities to shadow experienced Futsal coaches, in addition to delivering a chance to implement lessons learned from the FA Level 1 and Level 2 in Coaching Futsal courses through a number of Futsal programmes across Merseyside.

Please note that mentoring will be delivered as a group of coaches, not one-on-one, with a target of enabling coaches involved to deliver sessions during Tuesday evening development centres with the support and assistance of established/experienced Futsal coaches.

In addition, members of the Futsal Mentoring Group will be able to access a series of evening and weekend workshops to enhance theoretical and practical learning, alongside CPD events hosted in partnership with local leagues, clubs, schools and universities.

The Futsal Mentoring Group’s key ambition is to deliver support through practical opportunities for coaches, so that they can engage with Futsal on a local level.

Support will also be provided for coaches wishing to obtain FA Level 2 in Coaching Futsal qualifications.

Across June and July, Liverpool County FA will be hosting an Expression of Interest, with a view to commence mentoring group activities in September, in line with the new season starting.

All coaches MUST have an in-date CRC in order to join the Futsal Mentoring Group and access the support of staff involved.
