Whether it is coaching players, referees, youth or adult, male of female football - coaching is a critical part of developing the game throughout the country, and it is no different in North Riding. Any player or referee will tell you, a coach has played a huge part in their development, possibly being the most influential. 

Coaching is vital for all of us and it's fantastic to hear your feedback. Below are some of the testimonials we receive from you. We're proud of them and are determined to maintain our high levels.

David Carruthers – Introduction to First Aid in Football course – 30/08/17

"I think that this was the best delivered FA course I have been on. I've attended c.20 full day's worth of courses. L1, L2, Youth module, and the mandatory ones. Dave was excellent last night at delivering the course. Very professional, great subject knowledge, great delivery style."

Stuart Watson – Introduction to First Aid in Football course – 30/08/17

"I speak on behalf of everyone who attended from Rawcliffe JFC at the above course. Massive praise to Dave who presented the course it was engaging - light hearted - delivered brilliantly and kept a very diverse group of adults focused for the duration of the course. Personally one of the best presented courses I've attended."

Michal Czekajlo – Level 1 in Coaching Football Course – September 2017

"Attending a Level 1 in Coaching Football course gives a great opportunity to talk with other people about their coaching experience. I've learnt a lot from other coaches which I intend to put into practice."

Tracey Shorney – Level 1 in Coaching Football Course – September 2017

"Before the course comes to a close tomorrow, I just wanted to thank you. I have been coaching for 6 weeks now and the difference in that short time in my sessions is down to everything I have learned during the past few weeks with you. I won't deny it has been a baptism of fire, I was literally thrown into coaching the U6s in August and then started this course in September. I have struggled at times with learning so much in a short period of time but I can feel some of it coming together. If you had have said to me six weeks ago that I would lead and deliver a session to 16 adults on a coaching course, I would have come out in a cold sweat...but I did it. Thank you."

Kevin Robinson – Level 1 in Coaching Football course – October 2017

"I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the coaches. Graeme Clark has a very relaxed yet commanding style which was fun to learn from, bringing in real actual events from his own experience was very helpful. Barry Dawson again used a great style to involve the whole group and ensure everyone took part and was engaged throughout the First Aid training."  Jennie Bennett is very knowledgeable in her safe guarding field and again ensured that we all understood the importance of our roles, to recognise potential issues and what to do. James Lofthouse is equally passionate about the game, people involved and shared ways of getting help, during setting up of the pitch. Thank you to you and the team for a very enjoyable few weeks which I am confident will make me a better coach."


Andrew Elphick – Level 1 in Coaching Football course – October 2017

"I'd just like to thank you for delivering the level 1 coaching course. I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I look forward to using the coaching skills I have learned over the past few weeks, using the knowledge I have gained to help me become a better coach and help my players develop."
