What qualifications do I need to coach Adult football?

Modified on Wed, 06 Dec 2023 at 11:54 AM

In order to become a Coach or Team Manager in Adult football at the grassroots level there are no requirements.

  • All that is required is a 'Confirmed registration' on COMET

If you are looking to become a First Aider, you will require

  • FAW Emergency First Aid Award

This must be valid, and in date.

We would also recommend completing the below, although this is not mandatory for either a Coach or First Aider role.

  • FAW Safeguarding Award
  • FAW Football Leaders Award
  • Enhanced DBS Check for Regulated Activity
