After a record breaking year in 2009, the Scottish FA South East Region has improved its coaching programmes to suit the needs of coaches and volunteers.

As well as the Scottish FA Coach Education Certificate courses, the region will offer a number of short coaching clinics, two football conferences (one for the small-sided game) and a full programme of club and volunteer development workshops.

Brochures are winging their way to clubs and schools over the festive period, and will also include the South East Region coach education calendar in poster format. You can also download the new 2010 brochure and application form on the right.

Key dates:

Saturday 27 February 2010
