Norfolk FA Coaches Club

The Norfolk FA Coaches Club

Here at the County FA, we acknowledge that changes to coach education have left coaches without face-to-face support. We want to invest our time and resources into filling this void to support the people that keep grassroots football going.

Safeguarding and Welfare


Everyone in football has a responsibility to make our game safe and enjoyable.

This is particularly true for coaches. A coach is in a privileged position. The nature of the role means he/she can have significant influence over children and young people and develop relationships of trust with children and their parents/carers. It’s therefore important that coaches understand their safeguarding responsibilities.

Find out how The FA and Norfolk FA manages safeguarding nationally and locally. You’ll also find detailed information on the game’s safeguarding strategy, and how it applies to you.



Criminal Records Checks

Football is for all. Regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability, disability, faith or age.
