Becoming a Manager

So… you want to become a Raiders Manager?

Here is what is involved.

Criminal Record Checks (CRC)

The FA requires those working in eligible roles with children and young people to pass a criminal records check. This is in line with legislation and government guidance and is standard practice.

This is the first thing you must do. It is an essential requirement for all managers to submit Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) forms to the Club before coaching or managing children. This is FA policy and is a fundamental aspect of achieving the club’s FA 3-Star Accredited status. It is the responsibility of all new Managers to make contact with the Club Welfare Officer to complete this process prior to commencing management duties.

FA Level 1 coaching qualification

The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football is the first stepping-stone on the core coaching pathway. It will provide you with an introduction to coaching the game and working with players from under 7 to open age.

You will gain an insight into the game in England, how it is played and how you can coach to better support the development of future player

This is the starting point for all Managers/Young Coaches at Raiders. It MUST be completed by ALL managers.

All managers MUST complete an FA Level 1 course (including Emergency First Aid and Safeguarding Children) by the end of their first year.  The costs for this course are paid for by the Club, and can be reclaimed through a Manager’s Expenses Form.
