COACHES CLINIC WITH FOUNDATIONโ€™S UEFA A COACH

Foundation of Light is delighted to announce the latest Coaches Clinic which returns to the Beacon of Light this month where grassroots coaches can learn from one of the best in the business.ย 

Open to all coaches regardless of qualification, this monthโ€™s Coaches Clinic will take place on Friday 16th November (5.30pm-8.30pm) focusing on implementing your philosophy through training to matchday within football.

The session will be split into theory and practical workshops, special guest coach Michael Havelock, Scholarship Manager at the Foundation of Light who will discuss transferring ideas from the page onto the pitch and for players to take this into their individual and team games.

We sat down with Michael for an insight into his background and what he is looking forward to at this monthโ€™s Coaches Clinic.

I feelย passionate about football and football coaching, Iย believe thatย learning isย continuous. ย Every timeย I feel like I am becoming competent, I find someone orย somethingย that challenges my beliefs and understanding. ย This kind of stimulation is what makes football and learning so intriguing.ย 

How did you get started in coaching?ย  What interested you about it? โ€œI completed my FA Junior Team Managers Award while I was still at school with Barney Jonesย (a long time ago). ย I followed on from this a couple of years laterย by achieving my FA Coaching Certificate (now Level 2) at Crewe Alexandra with Chris Walters, he had so much passion for football and aย willingness toย improveย players, heย was a big influence. ย He inspired me to be a coach and offered me my first coaching job.โ€

Could you give an overview of your career so far? โ€œI have had many roles over the last 20 years, working within grassroots football at all ages from u7s up to u18s, coaching teams as well asย overseeing the development of grassroots coaches. ย I spent several years working seasonal periodsย in America, finishing offย with a yearlong placement at Seattle FC.ย I have worked in adult football as a First Team Manager in theย mens Northern Alliance andย Women’s Premier League over aย number of years. ย I have lead andย supported on various FE and HE Football Development Programmes within the North East, coaching male and female players. ย I have also worked within the Foundation phase and the Youth Development phase within a Professional Football Clubย Academy. ย I spent many years working within theย Girls Regional Talent Club system at u14 and U16 level. I am currently an FA Affiliate Tutor for Level 1 and Level 2 coaching awards. ย My time at the Foundation of Light has involved schools sport coaching, specificย footballย andย pathwayย coachingย sessions. ย I have overseen the schoolsโ€™ delivery team as well as moving on to become Curriculum Lead for Sport and Play. ย During this time,ย I wasย involved in introducing the post 16 offer of the Footballย Scholarshipย Programme forย talentedย football players, a programme I now manage and coach within.โ€

You’re a UEFA A qualified coach โ€“ what did the course entail? What opportunities does having this qualification offer?ย  โ€œI embarked on the UEFA A License in 2014 at St.ย George’sย Park, it was a very intensive and informative course. ย I wasย privileged to haveย theย opportunity to mix with some high-quality coaches from clubs all around the country. ย Thisย experience was invaluable and allowed me to develop myย knowledge andย application of the game. ย The qualification gave me the skillset to work within professional football andย contributeย to developing players in this country.โ€

Theย FREEย initiative is set up to develop grassroots football coaching, ensuring that coaches get more out of coaching and players get more out of playing.

Places are limited, and pre-booking is essential.ย  To secure your place contact jamie.wright@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 563 4727.
