FREE coaching course and mentoring on offer at the Gavin Strachan Coaching Clinic

Peterborough United assistant manager Gavin Strachan has acquired vast experience during his career as a player and coach in professional football.

And now Gavin, who had spells playing at clubs including Coventry City, Hartlepool and Notts County, wants to pass on his 25 years' of experience to other coaches in the form of general coach education and mentoring.

Working in conjunction with education provider, The Football Family, women (aged 16 onwards, no other age restrictions) are actively encouraged to apply for a place at the 'Gavin Strachan Coaching Clinic'. The course, which is free, is based in the midlands at Rugby Borough FC, starting on Sunday 2 February.

There will be eight coaching days in total, with each day being two months apart, allowing mentoring in between the dates. There is also a coaching qualification, Level 2 community activator coach, attached to the course.

The course will be based around general coaching principles, including how to prepare/deliver a session, but will also focus on an insight into working at a professional club along with:

  • Age specific coaching.
  • Position specific coaching.
  • Video analysis - creating sessions based on opponents strengths or weaknesses.
  • Philosophy - analysing others and building a clear philosophy of your own.
  • Sports Science - working with the medical and sports science team on a daily basis.
  • Talent ID - selling a player to the board - Role play.
  • Attacking, Defending, Transition - creating sessions on these topics and discussing trends in the game.
  • Getting a job - CV writing, interview process.
