Development opportunities in Shropshire

stay on top of your game

Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.

To support your journey, The FA provides a range of learning opportunities for you to engage with. From events in your region to online resources to in situ mentoring, you can access the development support that will make the biggest impact to you and your role.

For the majority of CPD events that include a practical element we like to invite a group of players from a local Charter Standard Club to participate. If you would like to nominate your squad for a particular event then please email Matt.Jones@TheFA.com.

Topic | 'An Introduction to the Youth Development Phase (12 - 16 yrs) England DNA'

The Youth Development Phase DNA is currently in development and Graeme Carrick the project lead would like to share some of the detail to help support coaches working with players aged 12-16 years linked to the England DNA.

The evening will consist of a presentation outlining the key messages from the YDP DNA followed by a practical session to demonstrate how this works in coaching scenarios, providing attendees with new insight & ideas that they may wish to transfer to their own coaching environment where appropriate.
