Course objectives

“This 40 hour course teaches participants the main principles of coaching – organizing and effectively running group sessions, developing age specific training and analyzing training sessions and matches. The course was designed using UEFA Licensing standards to create a specific Bermuda certification.

“Those participants achieving a score of 80 in their assessment will be considered as candidates to progress to the fully accredited UEFA B License, which is delivered by the Scottish FA. Each candidate for the C license course will receive the Coaching Handbook, three age specific coaching manuals.

Who is the C License course for?

“The course is suitable for coaches with two or more years of experience, or have attained the pre-requisite Intro to Coaching certificate. Candidates are encouraged to be in reasonable physical condition and to be prepared to participate in drills being run by their fellow coaches.

“Candidates who successfully complete the course will meet the licensing requirements of the BFA, along with SCARS and First Aid / CPR training, and will be eligible to coach at the children’s and youth football levels up to U17.

Costs

“The BFCA underwrites some of the expenses of our courses to help keep access to coaching education affordable for those who have a desire to become certified and gain more proficiency with their standard of coaching. This is reflected in the low costs to the candidates:
