Enhancing lives through football

Coaches Academy

The Devon FA Coach Academy offers regular training-based, matchday-based and online workshops, delivered by FA Technical and Coaching Staff, top professional game coaches from Exeter City FC, and ex-professional players and managers.  

There are 4 structured season-long programmes for you to choose from:

  • Foundation Phase (ages 5-11)
  • Development Phase (ages 12-18)
  • Adult 11v11
  • Female Game

Each group has a lead tutor running an online session in-between workshops to help you review previous events and link them to your team.

You can join as an individual coach (£30), or as a club (£100, which allows all coaches listed within your club to join).

Foundation, Development and Female Game coaches are also offered the chance to participate in futsal events with their team (which include CPD), though these cost an additional £20 (individual) / £80 (whole club).
