Manchester Titans Announce Coaching Development Clinics

Following an incredibly successful season for the Manchester Titans, the Programme have announced a series of coaching clinics aimed at contributing to raising the level of American Football Coaching in the UK:


The Manchester Titans are happy to announce that the club will be putting on a monthly coaching clinic available to all coaches.

The clinics, which will take place on the first Monday of each month, will take place in Manchester and will be looking to feature guest speakers from across Britball, as well as in-house speakers.

The first event took place Monday 3 September at The Manchester College – Nicholls Campus, with the Titans planning to run sessions once a month until April.

“We’ve been looking at ways to expand our coaching development for the past few years now and we finally believe we have the resources available to put them on,” said Club Chairman Jonathan Homer.

“I’m excited to see what we can put on, and excited to learn alongside coaches from other teams.”

The clinics will consist of two 45-minute talks, with 15 minutes at the end for questions and open discussions. The club is also looking to film the clinics to be made available through an open online resource bank.

“We’ve trialled online video conferencing for clinics within the club, but it didn’t work out the way we’d hoped,” stated Manchester Titans and Great Britain U19s Team Manager Verity Brawn.

“It’s been something we’ve been desperate to do for a while and I can’t wait to finally see the wheels in motion.”

The Titans will be making more information available through their Facebook page, and through set events on Facebook too. Be sure to like the ‘Manchester Titans American Football Club’ to keep up to date with the latest news and events.

These clinics have the full support of BAFCA, with Coach Wayne Hill the Head of BAFCA speaking on November 3rd.
