    Class of 2018: graduates from a previous BFCA Introductory to Coaching course

The Bermuda Football Coaches Association will hold its annual meeting on Monday at the National Sports Centre pavilion starting at 6.30pm.

All members are encouraged to attend and participate in the election of officers. Members must be financial for 2020, with their $75 dues paid, in order to vote.

The BFCA has helped to educate more than 350 coaches through courses made available to Bermuda’s football coaches. This has played a significant role in helping many to meet the criteria established by the Bermuda Football Association in 2018 for mandatory coach licensing.

Included in the total are 212 coaches who have completed the C licence course; 85 coaches who completed the Intro to Coaching Course; 20 coaches who completed the Scottish FA level 1 & 2 Goalkeeping courses; and 35 coaches who have travelled to Scotland to complete the Uefa B licence course.

The BFCA C licence course, to be led by Uefa-qualified instructor Jacques Crevoisier, will take place from February 10 to 18, with part two scheduled for September 7 to 14.

The C licence course teaches participants the main principles of coaching — organising and effectively running group sessions, developing age-specific training and analysing training sessions and matches. This 40-hour course was designed using Uefa licensing standards to create a specific Bermuda certification.

The course is suitable for coaches with two or more years of experience, or those who have attained the prerequisite Intro to Coaching certificate. This two-part course comprises classroom and on-field sessions, with individual assessments held at the end of the course.

The course is sanctioned by the BFA and helps the successful candidate qualify for the BFA C coaching licence required to coach under-13 to under-17 teams playing in the BFA youth leagues. The course will be held at North Field.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
