Hosting a Community Course

To ensure that coaching courses are conducted when Clubs & their coaches require them rather than being directed by FFV, this course request form has been created.

Course Request Form

If there is a demand within a club for a course (MiniRoos, Skill Training or Game Training) please complete this Jotform link.

To be considered to host a coaching course at your club, there are key requirements that need to be met. Your venue must be able to provide the following for the entirety of the course:

  • Access to a marked pitch (with lights - if conducted at night).
  • Access to changing rooms.
  • Access to a classroom/clubroom space that has tables and chairs.
  • Ideally a whiteboard/AV equipment (not mandatory but preferred).

Note: Completion of the form does not guarantee scheduling of course.

Further information about accessing and correcting your details or making a complaint are available in FFV’s Privacy Policy.  By completing and submitting his form, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described above and as set out in FFV’s Privacy Policy.
