This area is for Ministry of Football lead and assistant coaches to use as an induction to the programme, and for ongoing coach development.

The various pages will give an overview of the programme: what we do and why and how we do it.

The main section of the For Coaches area concerns the Session Checklist. This Checklist describes the different areas that we aim to include in every session. Coaches can use these pages to evaluate their planning and delivery of sessions, identify their areas for growth, and learn more.

The overall aim of these pages is to contribute to Coach Development, i.e improving what we do and how we do it. If you are new to MoF, then the 'Intro to MoF' may be a good place to learn more about the programme. More experienced coaches may like to consider the 'Coach Development' page as a good place to begin.

Feedback is welcomed. Just drop me an email or give me a call.
