Female Coaching Development Group
no matter where you are on your coaching journey, we are here to offer support through mentoring and Development opportunities in conjunction with the new fa coach development officer for women & girls.
The Cheshire FA Female Coaches Network has been developed to support aspiring and existing female coaches within Cheshire.
You do not need a coaching qualification, there is no application, and it is never too late to be part of the Group. All females aged 14+ are welcome to join and be as involved or committed as they wish, to ensure they are getting the correct outcomes against their individual needs.
