Default American Football Coaching Qualifications - 31.05.2005, 12:14 PM

I am already a qualified football (soccer) coach and will be working in the States this summer but I am also very interested in becoming an American football coach.

Are there any recognised American football coaching qualifications in the States and if so can they be done over here in the UK?

I seem to remember on this site British American Football Coaching badges and some coaching authority on one of the pages.

Try "grassroots"

Get in touch with BAFCA - they'll be able to tell you more.

EDIT - I can't spell double-you double-you double-you... :-\

There's actually a BAFCA Level 1 coaching course in Bristol on June 11th. Check out this post from Simon Hatcher (BAFCA Membership Secretary).
It's a very interesting and insightful course, I went on the 1st ever one myself and I'd definitely recommend it.

With the continuing success of level 1 courses BAFCA are running another course in Bristol on 11th June 2005

The level 1 qualification consists of the following:

- A short written examination

Registration is from 9:30. Clinic starts at 10:00 and finishes approx. 4:30pm – Attendees are advised to attend in good time. As an official education qualification it requires attendance throughout the day to pass.
Due to the popularity of the courses pre-registration is required – register with Jim Messenger president@bafca.org tel 01245 425898

Cost is £10 to BAFCA members, non-members must join at £35 (minus £20 BAFA fee if already paid – bring registration number), so £25-45 for clinic plus membership.

The seminar is open to existing coaches and players wishing to get into coaching.
