The Devils Apprentice
As I lay there in bed and listen the rain hit of the window, like the sound of golf balls. I just think back to my playing days, the days were I was happy and having fun. But look at me now I had it all and now I have nothing. I am not happy anymore; I have to do something to get my mind of things. But what, what will make me happy again. I have tried Golf that was ok for a few Mounts but then just pissed me off. As I sit down and turn on the Television switch the channel to Sky sports news, Breaking news Alex Ferguson said he will leave Manchester united at the end of the season,. Wow when I woke up I was not expecting to see that on the news. So as I sit there thinking to myself it occurs to me, this is a sign go get my Coaching Badges. I should of done this a long time ago. That is what is wrong with me I miss the Beautiful Game.
So as I now know what I want to do I am on the phone like a light and I am asking the questions what do I need to do and how. I ring up Uefa and I say who I am. I get put on hold for about 30 seconds and then I hear a voice. So I understand you want to get your Badges well here is a little information on what you have to do.
The FA coaching course pathway is divided into three principal strands. The first entry point and foundation for all coaches is Level 1 which is a certificated course and allows progression through Level 2 and Level 3 up to the UEFA A Licence which is the qualification held by the managers of high level clubs and national teams. The second strand offers specialized training courses concentrating on targeted areas of the game such as football for the disabled and goalkeeping. The last strand focuses exclusively on the youth game and the need for different skills and tactics as players develop physically and mentally and progress through the game.
I am sorry but it is slandered Policy to read that out I hope you understand. Yes that is fine. When do I get started I need to have it as soon as possible. Just one more thing to read out Sir, National courses tend to focus on higher level FA coaching badges such as the UEFA A License that have relatively few candidates so running local courses would not be practical. Because of their nature, they normally require time away from home/work and are both intensive and residential and offer excellent networking opportunities as well as the chance to gain exposure to some very experienced coaching mentors.
Yes that is what I want to do. Ok Sir can I get your name, Age, and have you any Football Experience before this.
