Mission

Football is the world’s most popular sport; its simplicity and limited rules make it easy to understand and has helped to drive the popularity of the sport from its traditional bases in Europe and South America into the rest of the world.

Although simple to learn, football is one of the most difficult games to master. The ball is easily contestable, However, despite the widely held acceptance that it takes a long time to master how to play football there seems to be a very common misconception that it should not take very long to learn how to coach the game. If it takes around ten years of effort and practice to learn how to play, mastering perhaps one or two positions in the team, why should it take any less time to be the person the game is random, variable and externally paced, and by its nature is totally unpredictable. The complexity of the game requires high levels of decision-making, execution of actions and off-the-ball positioning. It requires a lengthy period of practice, training and development to acquire the experience, repertoire of skills and game understanding to become a top player.

However, despite the widely held acceptance that it takes a long time to master how to play football there seems to be a very common misconception that it should not take very long to learn how to coach the game. If it takes around ten years of effort and practice to learn how to play, mastering perhaps one or two positions in the team, why should it take any less time to be the person who knows everyone’s role?

A coach needs to be able to help the whole team function correctly, plan and conduct training sessions to improve team cohesion, observe and analyse team performance and create an environment that motivates, inspires and develops the players. Learning to be an effective team coach, like learning to be a player, is a process that takes a lot of time, effort and practice.
