Club Support & Mentoring

WATCH - The FA Coach Mentor Promo Film:

Club Support is generally provided in two areas: coaching & business skills (e.g. marketing, finance). Devon FA provide free club workshops and coaching workshops in both areas and charter standard clubs can also look to access an FA Club Mentor for coaching or a Sport England Club Matters mentor for business.


Coaching & FA Club Mentors

Our team of 8 FA Club Mentors currently work with 20 charter standard clubs around the County, helping coaches to improve. This is a free programme and the mentors also support clubs in developing a playing and coaching philosophy and use The FA's Future Game and England DNA coaching principles. Clubs can choose which coaches access 1-1 support from the Mentor, and mentors can also deliver club coaching workshops.


Sport England Club Matters

This is a great Sport England programme for club committee's which provides online training, workshops and the possibility of a mentorfor business, finance, marketing and club structures. Try the online Club Improvement Tool as a starting point, and attend free workshops with Devon FA and/or our partners Active Devon throughout the year. The Club Matters website also has lots of useful information and resources.
