Female Coaches

Playmaker to Pitch!

New FREE Female Coach Education program

The new FREE Female Coach Education program by Leicestershire & Rutland County FA has been designed to help females aged 16+ take their first steps into coaching football. The day long course will provide coaches an environment to complete the EE Playmaker course in an IT classroom with support from an FA Mentor or Community Champion, as well as discuss topics as a group. There will also be a 2-hour practical delivery to bring the basics of coaching football to life. Whether you are a parent wanting to help at training, or a volunteer looking to support grassroots football, this course is ideal for anyone getting started, regardless of experience or knowledge of football.  

As part of the course, you will receive: 

- Access to IT to complete the online qualification EE Playmaker
