Bermuda Football Coaching Course Announced

IslandStats.com
The Bermuda Football Coaches Association (BFCA) has announced the Intro to Coaching Course offering for 2018.

The new course is designed using the same UEFA Licensing standards as the C License course. It will serve as the entry point for the BFCA’s coaching education pathway.

The course curriculum is developed by Jacques Crevoisier and is delivered over two weekends, with instruction led by UEFA B qualified coach educators from the BFCA. It comprises classroom and on-field sessions, with individual assessments held at the end of the course.

The course is sanctioned by the Bermuda Football Association (BFA) and qualifies the successful candidate to receive the BFA “D” license, required to coach at Under 7, Under 9 and Under 11 Age Level teams.

Who is Jacques Crevoisier?

Crevoisier coached for the French Football Federation at Clairefontaine, winning the Under 18 European Championship in 2000, and served as a UEFA Senior Director for the Technical Department. He was also the first team coach at Liverpool FC from 2001 to 2003, consulted for Sochaux, St. Etienne and Monaco and provided psychology work at Arsenal and Tottenham (he has a degree in sports psychology.) Crevoisier is a regular match day commentator on English Premier League and other top European games and a regular public speaker

Course objectives

This 15 hour course teaches participants how to plan, organize, and deliver enjoyable coaching session in a safe environment. Participants will learn how to organize small-sided games and age appropriate sessions, and develop in players a variety of technical skills - juggling, passing, receiving, shooting, dribbling and running with the ball. The course curriculum also focuses on working with and educating parents about positive support, reinforces responsible conduct of a coach and deliver knowledge of basic laws of the game.

Who is the Intro to Coaching course for?

The course is geared toward Parents, Team Managers, PE Teachers, Current & former players who are new to coaching; and existing coaches (especially U7-U11) who have not had any formal coaching education. Candidates are encouraged to be in reasonable physical condition and to be prepared to participate in drills being run by their fellow coaches.

Those participants achieving a specific score and demonstrating proficiency in their assessment will be considered for recommendation as candidates to progress to the BFCA’s UEFA C equivalent course.
