Course summary

This course provides an opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge required to gain employment in the football industry both in the UK and internationally. This is achieved by combining the systematic and detailed analysis of Association Football within a vocational and applied coaching context. Students are able to develop their practical coaching competence through studying the theories and concepts that underpin team and individual performance in Association football and by pursuing a supported series of coaching placements.

The Football Coaching and Performance programme aims to: Foster and nurture an engaging and critical analysis of the theories and concepts relevant to enhancing performance in Association Football. Ensure students acquire a systematic understanding of the principles of play appropriate to Association Football and advanced tactical and strategic knowledge relevant to the 11v11 format and other formats of the game. Develop a critical understanding of the cultural, political, social and economic landscape in which Association Football is located and the dynamic inter-relationship with the process of sports development at a local, regional, national and global level.

The University of Chichester has a long tradition of playing excellence in Association Football. Through this expertise and the active coaching involvement of its staff the University has an extensive network of relationships with many local professional and semi-professional clubs as well as a growing network of international relationships with clubs in North America and Asia. It also hosts the Sussex Futsal league and is a Centre for Disability Football, as well as being an approved centre for FA/1st4Sport coaching qualifications. During the course of the programme students will be able to apply and develop their knowledge of Association Football through the context of the different formats in which the game is played.
