Safe and encouraging
For those aged 16 +, we offer a programme of FA Level-1 and -2 coaching courses throughout the year. SMP has always sought to respond to the evolving needs of its members and the Covid 19 pandemic has presented us with a number of challenges in that regard.
Since the first lockdown we have adapted our website to host more interactive online sessions, including wellbeing drop-in discussions, football skills training sessions, quizzes, a book club and live football ‘watch-together’ groups. We have also been able to remain a constant and reliable source of personal support, maintaining contact with our young people through Zoom, Instagram, WhatsApp groups, phone calls and one-to-one visits at a safe distance.
All are coaches are FA-qualified with enhanced DBS checks.
