St Albans City Youth Football Club had a fantastic half-term week – holding a training course for new young coaches.
The Young Coaches Programme formed part of Coach Education Week and saw 20 new enthusiastic young people accredited as community sports coaches.
It was held in association with The Herts FA, Herts Sports Partnership and Apex Multisport.
The programme aims to keep more 14 to 18 year olds actively involved in sport.
The 14 and 15 year olds complete a Sports Leaders Qualification while the older coaches are able to take a Level One Sports Certificate.
The qualifications allow the coaches to become useful members of the community by supporting the City Youth school and community activities.
Community coach Paul Spink said: “I look forward to getting the additional support from the new coaches. It will help us to expand our existing programme”
