Thriving on the Pitch

Register your interest in a Thriving on the Pitch workshop

Cumberland FA are looking to run a face-to-face CPD workshop specifically for coaches who have recently completed the Introduction to Coaching Football course. 

The FA’s ‘Thriving on the Pitch’ is a 3 hour workshop and will support coaches to transfer their online learning to the pitch for all ages and abilities.

Ray Sempill, Football Development Officer for Cumberland FA said “Following the success of our recent CPD event (Developing Skilful Players) in Carlisle and the interest in the forthcoming second event in Whitehaven, we’re conscious that, as the I2CF course has now been moved online, candidates may have missed out on the face-to-face delivery and networking opportunities that the previous Level 1 course used to provide.” 


In order to deliver the free workshop, Cumberland FA are looking for coaches to express their interest to enable us to support their continued development.

Please see below the details of The FA’s ‘Thriving on the Pitch’ workshop:

This CPD event will:

Target coaches who have recently completed FA Introduction to Coaching Football (I2CF)
Include viewing or participating in Level 1 / I2CF practical session to give coaches ideas on how to coach their players at this introductory phase - Game Related Practices and 3 Stages of the Game
Provide three accredited CPD hours.

Aimed at coaches who have completed the I2CF and may be looking to book on a UEFA C (Formerly Level 1), this workshop will explore the following:

Players loving the game
Engaging with your players
