FA Level 1 – Soccer Coaching Qualification 

Have you already taken you Soccer Association Level 1 coaching qualification and hold the FA level 1 badge and want ideas on how to progress as a football coach, using the knowledge base and qualification you have already gained? Are you thinking of progressing to the Soccer Association Level 2 qualification or taking the Soccer Association Level 1 age appropriate course?

Are you thinking of taking the FA Level 1 coaching qualification and want some ideas and sessions to practice in preparation for the course?

Here at Grassrootscoaching.com, we have concentrated on improving and expanding the practical football curriculum of the FA Level 1 coaching course. For those football coaches who have or will take the FA Level 1 coaching qualification, you will be given a resource that explains and outlines a series of basic coaching drills. The idea of these coaching drills is to give you a visual resource that will assist you in your final practical assessment and to assist you with your general coaching. 

We have taken these original coaching drills and created a series of coaching videos and printable PDF's which add progressions and challenges to these original drills and bridge the gap between FA Level 1 and Level 2 badges. For those who have or are considering taking the Soccer Association Level 2 coaching course, we have shown how these FA Level 1 drills can be linked into the practical curriculum of the FA Level 2 course. 

There are over 50 coaching videos (over 4 hours). Each category of coaching videos has a number of progressions that enables the coach to test the players, add challenges and games and to make the session fun and interesting for the players. Regardless of whether you are considering taking the FA Level 1 course or are already hold an FA Level 1 badge, what you have learnt or will learn on the football level 1 course will inspire you to open your eyes to what you could achieve as coaches and provide a foundation and motivation to progress as coaches. Like so many things in life, this introductory level to coaching leaves football level 1 coaches wanting more. They want to stretch themselves as coaches and to provide drills for their players that will not only be fun, safe and organised, but will also test, develop and improve their players.
