Certificate in Coaching Children

Coaching children is a challenging and enormously rewarding role within the coaching pathway. Players need expertise, support and passion at every level of their development.

Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Children

 This Level 2 course is designed with your players’ needs at its core.

All of the experiences, tasks, practices and sharing of ideas which you experience during the course are designed to help equip you with the tools you need to meet your players’ needs.
