Following on from the work carried out by the St. Johnstone Community Department since the early 1990's, The Trust, in partnership with the Scottish FA, provides support to potential coaches in three main areas:- 

  • Scottish F.A. Coach Education Courses

  • In Service Training

  • Club Coaching Packages

COACH EDUCATION

We offer Scottish F.A. Coach Education Courses and these normally take place either at Kilgraston School, Bridge of Earn or at Perth College UHI. These courses give local coaches the opportunity to progress to level 1.3 qualification.

Forthcoming Scottish F.A. Coach Education Courses in 2018 for adults aged 16 years or above are listed at the bottom of this page.

Venue for courses: KILGRASTON SCHOOL, BRIDGE OF EARN or PERTH COLLEGE UHI.

NOTE:  A discounted rate is available for certain courses to coaches from clubs who have or are working towards the appropriate SFA Quality Mark status.

If you are unsure if this applies to you, contact your club or check the Scottish FA database.

FOR FULL INFORMATION AND TO BOOK A COURSE, VISIT THE SCOTTISH FA SITE.

IN SERVICE TRAINING

Our team of Saints in the Community coaches attend regular In-Service sessions, designed to enhance their knowledge of football and the positive approach to working with young players.

Members of the Saints in the Community Football Coaching Team are supplied with Training Kit, Coaches Handbook and Scottish FA Policy Booklets and also have the opportunity to attend various In-Service Training Courses at which our ethos and coaching procedures are highlighted.

We are delighted to embrace the concept of Positive Coaching Scotland and place great emphasis on kids having fun, giving maximum effort and respecting all aspects of the game.

We have a mixture of experienced and trainee coaches and aim to provide an environment that promotes ongoing personal development.

GET INVOLVED: If you are interested in becoming a member of our team please do not hesitate to get in touch.

CLUB COACHING PACKAGES

We are now able to offer coaching packages specific to your club with the aim of offering local clubs a range of support packages to develop young players and coaches.
Get in touch with Danny Griffin, Community and Club Development Officer to discuss how we can work together.
