Limited availability on coaching courses
An FA Youth Award Module One in the Romford area and a Coaching Disabled Footballers Course in Leigh-on-Sea are amongst a range of forthcoming football educational opportunities being offered by the Essex County FA during March and April, and only a limited number of spaces remain.
Several courses are approaching during the next few weeks, with the Youth Award Module in Collier Row particularly close to capacity. Coaches are also able to take either of the first two steps into the game in Halstead or Southend, and Maryanne Dennis from the County Office is expecting demand to be high for the remaining spots.
“We only have a couple of places left on the Collier Row Youth Module, which we’re keen to fill as soon as we can,” she explained. “The novelty of the Halstead Level One is that it’s midweek, which is part of a trial we’ve organised as we received feedback that people can’t always attend courses at weekends. We’re also flagging the Level Two being run by Southend United as our own Level Twos are all currently fully booked.”
