Following a successful start to their Coaching Development Clinics earlier this week, the Manchester Titans have also announced a series of ‘Get into Coaching’ events to provide a pathway for the ‘coaching-curious’ to learn more about how they can get involved in Coaching American Football in the UK:
Off the back of their Coaching Development Clinics, the Manchester Titans are proud to announce a series of “Get into Coaching” sessions aimed at creating a pathway into coaching.
The series will run on the third Tuesday of each month, with the first of five sessions set for Tuesday 18th September at The Manchester College, Nicholls Campus.
The events will be free and will ultimately culminate with participants being given the opportunity to undertake their Level One Coaching Qualification at the end.
“As American Football grows in the UK, we’ve struggled to keep up with having enough coaches to fill all positions,” explained Club Chairman Jonathan Homer.
“We wanted to create a clear pathway into coaching which everyone from complete newcomers to retiring veterans a basic understanding of coaching football and the skills required to do so.”
While the Titans organisation will be leading the sessions, it will be open to anybody from any team, with no obligation to be apart of the Titans organisation going forward.
“The more coaches we have in football, the better. It doesn’t matter if they’re coaching for Manchester or anywhere else. We want to use our resources to do our bit in progressing football and creating more coaches within football,” states Homer.
The sessions will be open to coaches of all experience and will consist of both classroom learning and on-field practice.
