Surrey Football Coaches Association

Welcome to Surrey Football Coaches Association

We are a not for profit, volunteer run, independent organisation. We aim to help develop ALL coaches at all levels, whether novice or experienced. We want to provide our members and our friends from neighbouring regions, opportunities to observe and discuss, thought provoking, innovative and educational coaching demonstration sessions, delivered on a regular basis by some of the best coaches in the country.

We organise a wide variety of demos, delivered by a range of vastly experienced coaches from the professional, grassroots and educational side of football coaching. These sessions are specifically designed to help coaches who want to expand their understanding and knowledge of all aspects of coaching, regardless of the age and ability of the players being coached. Whether completely new to coaching or a Pro-licence looking to freshen up, if you are unsure then sign up to a session as a guest, come along and have a look.

Whether you coach 6 year olds or adults , boys or girls, grassroots or elite players, SFCA provides you the opportunity to observe and learn from some of the best coaches in the country. More importantly, we provide a unique environment that encourages you to share ideas and network with other coaches in Surrey and our neighbouring regions. For those who are seeking coaching roles we also provide information on available vacancies. We want to help our members and our friends from neighbouring regions reach their goals and become the best they can be.

The people that benefit most will be the players under your guidance.

Our past President Sir Bobby Robson, was one of the founding members and we support the work of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in cancer research

2019 Survey

The results of the members survey are published in full on the Document Download page. We think that overall we are going in the right direction but there are a few things that stood out and this is what we are doing about it:

Fantastic Session from Kevin and Geoff

On Wed March 27th  England National Coach Technical Directorate - Head Coach U16,  Kevin Betsy,  delivered the third of the England DNA back to back demo  sessions with grassroots players focusing on building, creating and finishing the attack. For a sneak peak check out this link Sneak Peak.   

Pete's session is still getting rave reviews

"SFCA, firstly, thank you for organising the event last night – fantastic event! Definitely fired me up to try and help make a difference and given me a thirst to learn and improve in the way I coach"

"Thank you to The Ghost @sturge_p for (hiding, moving and) revealing Roadshow 2 - The Return, ICW @sfca1965. An awful lot of people put an awful lot of thought into making football the simple game it is & you sir, are one. Thanks for insight & sharing"

"Great CPD event with @sturge_p at @CAFCofficial last night demonstrating the value of how important it is for our foundation phase players to have no boundaries and access to an environment where there are loads of opportunities to express themselves without the coach intervening"

"Thanks Pete and SCA for a fantastic night at FFC really helpful.  Loads of great stuff taken away from the session "

"Thank you @sturge_p for a great thought provoking & insightful session @FulhamFC Building core strength, intelligent dribbling & intelligent defending all delivered in a fun engaging manner.Lots of ideas for coaches to take away & build on"
