ESFA is opening up its SAP and Regional League training sessions to allow us to demonstrate to all ESFA Junior and SSF Coaches, what a model session should be like for the age groups concerned.

Under the tutelage of SAP Technical Director Greg Kokoviadis and Regional League Technical Director Barry Walker, we wish to invite all ESFA Junior and SSF Coaches to the following Sessions:-

5:30pm – demonstration with U9 (skills and warm ups) and U10 (skill training)

6:00pm – demonstration U11 (skill and game)

The above sessions foreshadow the establishment of the ESFA Coaching Council. We shall be organising meetings and seminars for those who wish to attend along with future model sessions.

The Coaches Council will also coordinate a full program of coaching courses during the off season.

We ask Clubs to forward this email to all their Junior and SSF coaches as this is a prime opportunity to learn from our expert coaching staff.

Through the Council, coaches and clubs will be able to make the investment of a small amount of time to yield a profit of better coaching and development in the future of community football.

We hope to see all SSF and Junior Clubs represented.
