Coaching Support


Your coaching journey starts here

Coaching can be one of the most rewarding roles in football.

Ask any footballer who they rank as the most important influence on their career and almost all would make reference to a coach, past or present.

Our Coach Education team here at Durham FA are committed to ensuring that support is available not only for community of existing coaches but also for every aspiring coach in the County. From the moment you make your first enquiry to the moment you give up that trusty tactics board, we're here to make sure you become the best coach you can be.

So if you think you're up to the challenge of inspiring, developing and motivating players to play the game we all love, then perhaps it's time to become an FA Qualified Coach!
