Description

Date: Monday 30 April
Time: 7.00 - 9.15pm
Venue: Dr Iven Suite, Turf Moor Stadium, 25-56 Harry Potts Way, Burnley, BB10 4BX

This event is best suited to individuals who:
  • Aspire to coach within football;
  • Currently coach at any level of the game;
  • Want to learn how to create and develop football clubs;
  • Want to learn how to access coaching courses;
  • Want to listen and converse with experienced coaches such as FA coach mentors;
  • Aim to network with football’s key stakeholders and other grassroots personnel;
  • Aspire to develop a professional career within football.
Creating & Developing Coaches, formed by Leeds Beckett University in partnership with the FA, aims to provide a platform for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) coaches, or personnel working with under-represented groups, to network with football’s key stakeholders in the Lancashire region.

Creating and Developing Coaches targets both aspiring and current coaches who wish to either break into the game, or further develop their skills, knowledge and contacts.

Creating and Developing Coaches is proud to work in partnership with experienced football coaches who work in the professional and grassroots game as well as influential organisations such as County FA’s, Black and Asian Coaches Association (BACA), Sporting Equals, Lancashire Sport Partnership, and Kick It Out. Our partners aim to offer their guidance, help and support for the attending coaches.

Although this free event is open for all to attend, Creating and Developing Coaches is specifically tailored to understand and meet the aspirations of football’s under-represented communities.

At present, there are only five black managers in English football out of the 92 professional clubs. And, according to Sporting Equals, only 4.1 percent of senior football coaches employed during the 2016-17 season were BAME, a slight decrease on the previous campaign. Considering that BAME groups represent over a quarter of professional players, it is evident that BAME coaches are marginalised in the professional game.

Creating and Developing Coaches attempts to challenge the under-representation of BAME groups within grassroots and create the next generation of coaches, thus providing more players with the opportunity to play.
