The Devon Football Association and their staff will be running our County Roadshows once again, travelling to every corner of the County, delivering key information and knowledge on all things football in Devon.

Keep your diary free for November as we will be determined to answer all your questions and queries on grassroots football in the County as we kick off the first session of Roadshows at County HQ in Newton Abbot on Thursday 2nd November.

The two main categories for our County Roadshows will be; ‘Development in Coaching Support, plus ‘Safeguarding Update’.

‘Development in Coaching Support’ will be presented by Dai Carpenter, covering these areas;

• Improvements to Devon FA’s Coach Mentoring programme.
• Area Coaching Hubs and opportunities for clubs to work with Devon FA.
• Internet, Apps and making the most of online coaching help.
• UEFA B Update.
• 2017/18 Coaching Course Programme.

‘Safeguarding Update’ will be presented by Matthew Hodgson, covering these areas;

• Update on club safeguarding requirements for this season and going into next season.
• The role of club welfare officers and other club committee members in ensuring safeguarding requirements are met.
• Devon FA role in supporting clubs and volunteers with meeting the requirements.
• The Importance of ensuring all coaches and volunteers at clubs have appropriate checks.

Throughout the Roadshows we’ll provide much needed information on these topics, ensuring all our clubs in Devon are in a good positon for the rest of the 2017/18 season.

Who is it for? A combination, from your club chairman, secretary, treasurer, charter standard coordinator, head coach/experienced coaches and indeed anyone who loves and supports the game, as this will help club discussions and further debate. Committee members and other key volunteers are encouraged to attend.
