16 Local lads this week will be undertaking the FA Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Football. Courtesy of funding from the Princes Trust, the group, who are all currently neither in education or employment, have the fantastic opportunity to gain a vital qualification and route into employment through football.
There's no shortage of ability and talent amongst the candidates and with the Level One under their belts each individual will be able to take the first steps towards becoming accomplished coaches.
Beavers Sports Lodge in partnership with the Princes Trust, Brentford FC and the Middlesex County FA are providing these local young people with the chance to better their circumstances through hard work and pre existing skills.
Each candidate had to complete 2 days of 'screening' to access this course. Proving not only their football knowledge and credentials but also, significantly, each individual's commitment towards their personal development through football.
Good luck to all!
