As football coaches, we are encouraged to make our sessions realistic. Why should the way we learn be any different?

At Extra Time Development, we provide practical CPD sessions, delivered on the pitch by highly experienced football coaches. Each session, designed around a specific topic, will be realistic to how you would structure your own sessions, using only readily available equipment accessible to the everyday coach. Each course is structured to cover every aspect of a single session, including the initial set-up, topic-relevant arrival activities, and game-realistic practices and progressions. Questions are encouraged throughout, however there will always be a short Q&A at the end of every course.

Bring your boots, as each participant on the course will have the opportunity to partake in the session for demonstrations. However, there is no requirement to join in as we understand that some may prefer to watch and learn from the sideline instead.

Our coaches have designed these sessions using their wealth of knowledge gained over years of working within the game. Each brings their own distinctive coaching method and delivery, formed through their experiences in different roles and environments. Whilst each coach is unique, they all have one thing in common; a passion for coach education. Our coaches are here to share their knowledge with you, equipping you with detailed coaching points and the ability to become adaptable in your own environments, whilst learning in an enjoyable, realistic and practical setting.
