The key courses delivered online within these unique, bespoke & accredited courses will include: Nutrition, Psychology and Mental Skills Training, Youth Soccer Player & Athletic Development, Soccer & Team Sport Training Methodology, Fitness & Conditioning Training, Tactical Analysis, Talent Identification, Goalkeeper Coaching Science and Injury Reduction & Return to Play.

Not only is the key to the partnership to develop FC Isle of Man coaches as part of their in-house club development process, but this opens the door for opportunities to be a part of an elite continued professional development & coach education strategy moving forwards.

According to FC Isle of Man’s Director of Football Paul Jones:
