Calling all soccermums! - can you help coach the next generation of female football stars?
The Hatters Community Trust are looking for Luton’s ‘Soccermums’, Aunties and Sisters to help them deliver the Club's rapidly expanding female football development programme.
With the help of Luton Adult Learning and the Skills Funding Agency, the Trust are able to provide 18 free spaces to local women to learn new coaching skills including an FA Level 1 coaching badge by enrolling in the 12-week female-only learning programme starting this month.
The aim is to create a group of female community champions, who will then be able to work for the the Community Trust and assist in the delivery of sports activities to members of the local community, and try to make a real contribution at local level to the sports provision in Luton.
As well as the FA Level 1 coaching certificate and Sports Leaders Award, there will also be First Aid and Child Safety qualifications to take.
To achieve this aim, the overall project aims to increase informal playing opportunities as well as increasing the awareness of the benefits of sporting activity together with the benefits of increased physical fitness and healthy lifestyles.
Daniel Douglas, community operations manager at the Hatters Community Trust told lutontown.co.uk: “We are a friendly and rapidly expanding part of the Club and look forward to hearing from enthusiastic women and girls aged over 19 years from Luton who want to get into football but currently lack either the skills or confidence or even know how.”
If you think you could become a female community champion and want to know more about our community coaching opportunities and would like to get involved, then why not give the community office a ring on 01582 737568 for a chat?
