We encourage Raiders parent managers to get better at what they do. All Parent Managers are required to complete FA Level 1  in Coaching Football.  If our Parent Managers want to take additional coaching courses, then the Club will assist with funding.

FA Licensed Coaches’ Club

Once they have an FA Level 1, Raiders Managers can sign up for free for The FA Licensed Coaches’ Club and benefit from:

  • Members only website with session plans, interviews and videos
  • Ballot entry for 100 pairs of tickets to every England home game
  • Access to FREE local CPD events
  • Discounts on FA national courses
  • FREE access to TactX – UEFA’s animation software
  • Discounts on Wembley Tours, FocusX2, and much more.

FA Courses

The first place to look for what’s available is the Herts FA web site.

Managers don’t have to undertake a coaching course in Herts. There are courses available in nearby counties – Beds and Bucks – which may be more convenient in terms of date and location.

Raiders also hosts FA CPD coaching and development courses at BerkoAstro.
