Bruegel the Elder Posted October 23, 2018 Report Share Posted October 23, 2018 In view of the recent thread regarding Caleb Summerfield (who I trust is now back to rude health), I was wondering what qualifications were required for managers at this level of football and those in “Junior” and youth football. The F.A. seems to suggest that anybody coaching at age levels 11+ should have a welfare qualification, one in Safeguarding and Coaching Level one (optional but recommended) and level 2. I suspect that the majority of our managers survive on experience and enthusiasm and have heard several say “I haven’t got time for all these fancy qualifications, I’m far too busy running the team”, others balk at the cost (indeed they’re not cheap). While understanding those feelings, I do wonder what price we should put on the health and safety of our young players. There again, I am about as far from an expert as it’s possible to be. Maybe all our Coach/Managers from SWPL level down to school kids football have all the qualifications needed to ensure the safety of those in their teams. Perhaps someone with far more knowledge than I, could tell me what the CCFA requirements are and to what extent they’re fulfilled. I’ve tried Google and the FA website but both are are obscure and impenetrable when you start looking for details. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
