Irish FA Delivers Foundation Disability Coach Education

Seven Foundation coaches have visited the Irish FA in Belfast to attend their annual Level 2 Coaching Disabled Footballers course and annual CPD requirement. This unique course held over two days enabled our staff to work hands on with children and young people who are deaf, blind, wheelchair bound, those who have Cerebral Palsy or a Learning Disability. They will continue the work with a 15 hour log books of local sessions they will deliver between now and the end of the year.

Additionally two young coaches then attended the annual European Disability Week Long Tandem Education programme 2017. Two programmes are held in Europe every year with Belfast and Leverkusen in Germany being the hosts this year. The football club social alliance (FCSA) a partnership of top European professional football clubs have been involved in Disability football and education since 2007. FCSA and Scort have been working to ensure that children and young people have greater opportunities to train and develop themselves through football and play.

The four day educational programme gives people with or without a disability who are interested in football the chance to become full time coaches with a mixture of practical and theory based experience to start their career. Qualified national FA instructors or guest clubs deliver and support all training and is something Newcastle United Foundation will become involved with going forward.

Newcastle United Foundation Disability Coach, Reggie Dornan, said: “We are committed to offering the best standard coaching in the country. We’re hugely proud that we offer weekly free football sessions for children and adults across the Disability spectrum and we want to make sure that we are giving the best opportunity to reach their full potential. Continued coach development is vital in helping us achieve this so it was brilliant for us to be involved in the courses in Belfast. Our Premier League / BT Disabilty funding also enables us to attend top class coach education, to deliver the best possible Disability football sessions throughout the North East region”
