England DNA Roadshow

FA England DNA Coaching Roadshow is coming to Devon!

We are delighted to announce that Devon FA will be hosting Pete Sturgess & Paul Holder, FA Coaching Leads for Youth Football (5-16yr olds), for a special England DNA Coaching Weekend in November 2021, as part of our Coaches Academy programme of events.

We are fortunate to have Pete & Paul visiting the county to deliver CPD for our coaches based around the Foundation & Development Phases of the England DNA. Pete & Paul have been pivotal in the design and development of the England DNA phases and are touring the country to promote and help implement this fantastic resource. The workshop resources and supporting CPD events are designed to help coaches, parents, and volunteers with the development of our youth players at all levels of the game.

The 2 days of events will introduce key messages and principles of the England DNA for young players through a mix of:

  • Theory presentations
  • Practical demonstrations and activity
  • Q&A

Saturday 27th November

10am – 2:30pm

Cranbrook Education Campus, Exeter. EX5 7EE

Foundation Phase (5-11yr olds) Pete Sturgess

Sunday 28th November

10am – 2:30pm

Devon FA, Coach Road, Newton Abbot. TQ12 1EJ

Development Phase (12-16yr olds) Paul Holder

This is a great opportunity for coaches from across Devon to receive some guidance and support on the England DNA which underpins some of the great work already taking place that supported our U17’s and U20’s 2017 World Cup winning teams.

The events will benefit coaches from all age groups, and we would like to see as many coaches in attendance from across Devon football as possible.
