Bristol City Launch Coaching Initiative

Tue 10th Jul 2012 | Football Club Management

Bristol City FC have become the first club in the country to launch a brand new Trainee Coach Initiative through their Academy, aimed at bringing grassroots coaching and the professional game closer together.

The scheme will begin in September and run for the whole season, giving 16 coaches from the region the chance to learn the Bristol City methodology and philosophy and then put it into practice with their own clubs or teams.

Tim Kirk, Academy director, said: "This is a real chance for coaches who work at grassroots level to develop their skills, hone them and also to become specialised in certain phases (age groups).

"We have 16 places available and I'm sure there will be a lot of interest in this pioneering initiative. Each of the chosen participants will receive a mentoring programme to shadow one of our coaches for a whole season.

"There will also be the possibility of working with one of our five district teams. This is a superb opportunity for local coaches to really enhance their skill set."

City's Academy will be partnering with five different district teams for 2012/13, covering South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath, Wiltshire and North Somerset.
