Third And Final Female Coaching Workshop A Success

Twenty-nine aspiring coaches attended the final instalment of a three-part workshop for 2014, designed to get more women into football coaching.

The event was delivered in partnership with Co-founder of Coever Coaching, Alf Galustian, and Academy Director, Joe Joyce at Newcastle United’s Little Benton Academy on Tuesday night to pass on expertise to the North-East’s female coaching talent. Foundation coaches, Jill Stacey and Natalie Henderson were also in attendance to help showcase coaching practices.

Twenty-nine female coaches attended the event, all from community clubs and universities, to see Alf Galustian teach the art of Coever coaching with theory and practical demonstrations. These practices were delivered with help from the players at Tyne Metropolitan College.

The ethos of these workshops is to provide a forum for sharing best practice and developing the local coaching workforce for the benefit of the young players in their care.

Jill Stacey, Area Development Officer for Gateshead at the Foundation said:

“The event was extremely successful, helping engage female coaches across the region. It was a great turnout and we are very grateful for the support we have received from Alf and our Academy.”

“We are extremely lucky and grateful to receive such fantastic support from internal and external partners, and we’re looking forward to more work in the future.”
