Stepping Over The Sidelines


Stepping over the Sidelines is a free, introductory workshop designed to encourage mums, female guardians, helpers, assistants, young leaders and players to take their first steps into coaching football.  

The workshop aims to break down some of the barriers such as, “I have no playing or coaching experience” or “I don’t know the rules” as well as looking at the skills you may already hold which can be transferable to coaching football. 

The practical aspect of the workshop is designed to showcase what coaching looks and feels like on the pitch, ensuring that you leave feeling comfortable and confident to get involved with a session.

Support from our Community Champions (Bev Clark and Jo Wilson) is also available for those just starting off coaching and need a bit of help or need help finding a club to start coaching at.
