Course1: Developing Effective Environments for Children in Sport

This course offers an overview of the role of the children’s coach as well as providing clarity about what children want and can gain from taking part in sport. The value of having a coaching philosophy and vision are also covered as is the importance of safeguarding and protecting children in sport. The course provides too a brief explanation of the impact of development in what and how we coach which will be expanded upon in Course.


Safeguarding children is part of UEFA’s vision for European football and as coaches you play a key role in this.
This eLearning does not contribute to the iCoachKids certification; however, it does have its own diploma. We would strongly encourage you to undertake this additional course as part of your continued learning in the field of football and coaching.
