Eleven female football coaches were celebrating after achieving their FA Level Two Coaching status, and Essex County FA Girls' & Women's Development Officer Emma Wake now hopes they will advance to long and distinguished roles within the game.
The Level Two Course, set up in partnership with the Colchester United Community Sports Trust and the Female Academy Programme for students aged from 16 to 19 years old, enabled the candidates to finally complete the extensive workload that involved sixteen hours of coaching. Also completed were an in-depth portfolio of tasks, a referee exam and a practical session that saw the females being assessed delivering a small sided game and coaching a technique or a function.
Essex' successful candidates are now suitably qualified to lead sessions within their club and school environments, and Emma hopes that the girls will now be confident to go out into the community and become role models for the young female players within the County. "It's essential these females now believe in their coaching ability," she said. "They've achieved a valued coaching certificate and must now actually go and use it. Young female players need to have access to female coaches to highlight that roles within sport for females are a reality nowadays and not a dream."
Emma is well aware of the advantages such courses can bring: "Female coaches can also relate to the female player, as many coaches have been through the player pathway and are aware of the hurdles players have to overcome if they have a desire to be the best they can be. I'm hoping that they will be pro-active, continue with their coaching careers by signing up to the Female Coaches Association and put what they have learnt into practice. They may even aspire to go on further and take their Level Three one day!"
