The Irish FA offers an extensive range of coaching courses, catering for all levels of our game, and intended to provide the necessary coaching knowledge required, whether for the game at grassroots level or at professional level.
The Grassroots Introductory Award and Level 1 Award cater for those who wish to coach at foundation age level and form the basic foundation of coaching practice for those who wish to progress higher up the Irish FA’s Coaching Ladder.
The Irish FA also offers the UEFA ‘B’ and UEFA ‘A’ Licence courses, both of which are very popular. These courses focus on coaching from Youth level to Senior level.
Specialist coaching awards are also available, such as the Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching Disabled Footballers Awards. Goalkeepers are catered for with the Goalkeeping Diploma.
