Active Stirling will be running a football development mentor group for aspiring coaches and students in the Stirlingshire area.

The group will run over 5 weeks on a Friday evening at Forthbank stadium from 7.00 pm until 10.00 pm during the period of May to July.

The aim of this project is to improve the coaching skills and knowlege of the coaches who are involved. Information provided will include topics such as Positive Coaching Scotland, timekeeping, session planning, motivation of participants, coaching styles and communication skills.

Each member of the group will be asked to deliver a total of 2 x 10 minute sessions during the 5 weeks and will receive feedback from staff on these sessions as well as how they can further progress as a coach.

Those interested in joining the football development mentor group will be asked to attend a recruitment evening at Forthbank stadium on Tuesday 26th April at 7.00 pm.

If you are interested in taking part within this group or would like to learn more about it please contact Graeme Henderson on or 01786 432323.
