Introduction to Coaching Football
The FA Playmaker supported by BT is our new, free online entry-level football course perfect for anyone interested in taking a more active role in grassroots football.
There are five modules in total and you don’t need any previous football experience or qualifications before signing up.
In fact, all you need is an FA Number (FAN) and a laptop, tablet or mobile device. Then you’re good to go.
You can check to see if you have a FAN already here.
If you cannot find that you have a FAN on the above link, you can create a new FAN here.
If you know your FAN but do not know your password, you can reset it here. You must have access to the email address linked to your FAN in order to reset your password.
Contact your County FA in order to let them know you are interested in completing one of their courses so they can provide you with further support.
For The FA Level 2 and FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football courses you must book your place with the County FA that your club is affiliated to. This is to ensure appropriate in-situ support can be provided throughout the course.
For other courses you may be able to book with a different County FA. So if you live close to another county, have a look at their website to see if they have suitable dates.
