We are delighted to have entered into partnership with Sports Structures to support BAFCA in streamlining and developing our coach education pathway.
Sports Structures are supporting British American Football Coaches Association in developing online content including a virtual classroom. This streamlining of the coach education pathway has taken the theory of the coaching courses out of the coaching course weekends and made it separate to the practical sessions. Learners can now book onto the theory aspect of the course separately and do it at their own pace within the new online virtual learning platform Sport Structures have created.
This has allowed British American Football Coaches Association to further reduce the time needed to complete the Level 1 Coaching Course to 1/2 day and the Level 2 to one day. The theory has to be completed prior to booking onto the practical elements of the course.
Wayne Hill, President of British American Football Coaches Association said ’with the support of Sports Structures and their new platform, we are now able to make the BAFCA coach education pathway much more accessible to both potential and existing coaches. The development of the system has also enabled a review of the BAFCA education curriculum and how this aligns with other Level 1, 2 and 3 coaching qualifications. This is an exciting opportunity to continue to support and develop our coaches, with the sports growth and popularity’
Simon Kirkland from Sport Structures said “We are delighted that the British American Football Coaches Association have chosen us to develop their coach education through our online platform, this adds another American sport to our portfolio alongside Basketball. We are looking forward to supporting the growth and accessibility to coach education for American Football Coaches.”
Courses will commence via the online learning platform from January 2020. For coaches wishing to access the BAFCA Level 1, 2 or 3 courses they can register their interest via the below link:
NB. This new education pathway removes the adjusted Provisional Level 1 process due to COVID as of Friday 11th December 2020.
