About the C License Course

This course focuses on, among other topics, – the principles of coaching; the role of the coach; the teaching-learning process; communication; ethics; coaches being able to assess their players’ developmental; coaches being able to plan and implement an effective training session with specific objectives; and to develop a progressive programme of appropriate duration.

Other areas of focus will be – coaches being able to understand the main moments of football and relate it to team task and function; coaches being able to identify and develop personal and professional behaviours in themselves and players and coaches being able to identify the basic elements that make up football among other areas.

The TTFA is committed to providing every opportunity for our coaches to succeed. We have established avenues for our coaches to receive continuing coaching education in order to increase their knowledge of the game and enhance their teaching approach. The FA sees the importance of defining a clear direction for player development through a plan for the future and remaining focused on reaching end goals. Not getting lost in the mix of day to day tactical strategies and playing only to win, is key for success.
