Early Touches is the first coaching course in the children’s pathway.  This 6-hour course is open to all interested parties aged 16 and over, experienced or otherwise, who work with children of primary school age. In addition to delivering new content, the course will assist coaches to develop their coaching technique, focus on skill development and will explore the best age specific activities for developing young players.


The course fee is £30.00. However, if your club is a Quality Mark club then you receive a discount or if you have signed up for the Coaches for Communities scheme then you will receive the course for free.
