35 Coaches from Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Wales attended Bristol Academy's first Female Coaching Seminar on Wednesday evening.
The event was free to all coaches working within Women's and Girl's football and was a fantastic opportunity for coaches to discuss different ideas around coaching and injury prevention with First team manager, Dave Edmondson and Club Strength and Conditioning coach Corinne Yorston.
The evening started with a 30 minute classroom based workshop with Edmondson, which got participants discussing what makes a good coach and an effective session. This was followed by a Strength and Conditioning workshop by the Vixens Captain, Corinne Yorston, who delivered a presentation focusing on injury prevention in female footballers. Yorston commented following the event: "It was amazing to see so many local coaches wanting to learn and improve their knowledge."
Coaches then made their way to the new 4G facility at SGS College, Wise Campus to observe a first team training session focusing on attacking from wide areas. Dave talked coaches through his session's progression and was happy to answer further questions from enthusiastic coaches at the end of the session. He said: "There was some good discussion and clearly some knowledgeable and enthusiastic coaches working in the women's game which is great for the region and for the further development of women's football."
As FA Club of the Year in 2011 and 2013, Bristol Academy WFC are working hard to develop strong links with the community and local clubs. The club will be looking to run another similar session later in the season following positive feedback from those who attended. James Standerwick from Villa Dino Girl's FC said: "It was a really good opportunity for our club to bring 5 girls team coaches to an elite training session and workshop. We all gained something from it and I am sure we can use some ideas to help improve our girls' football further.
Vixens manager Dave Edmondson was thrilled with the turnout and interest and said: "It was fantastic to see the number of grassroots coaches interested in discussing coaching methods and philosophies last night."
