Isle of Wight Football Association

A Division of Hampshire FA
 
 
Welcome to the Official Website of the
Isle of Wight Divisional Football Association.

The Isle of Wight Football Association is one of six divisions of
The Hampshire FA.

The others are Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Southampton,
North Hampshire & Aldershot.




Underrepresented groups in grassroots football will soon have more teams to play in.

The FA are investing £1.5m into the Grow the Game scheme –
a programme that increases participation at the lowest levels of the game.

Delivered by the Football Foundation, Grow the Game awards grants to grassroots football clubs that wish to create new teams. Applications are being encouraged from:·

Women and girls;·
Male teams of Under - 14s-and-upwards;·
Disabled teams.

     

The FA has added to its growing suite of free online coaching courses with the launch of its first ever Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC for short.

 

Developed in partnership with Birmingham University, this three-week qualification is titled “Youth Football Coaching: Developing Creative Players” and explores the developmental needs of young players as well as the role of the coach in coaching creative behaviour.

 

Available to all, the course will provide learners with three hours of innovative and engaging content each week where they’ll have the ability to self-select or create the most appropriate teaching practices for young players’ needs.

 

The course will also bridge unique gaps in policy, practice and research to provide a valuable learning experience.

 

Nick Baker, FA learning design and development manager, is one of the team behind the launch of the new course. He told TheFA.com that it’s an exciting new step forward in the way The FA can deliver education to coaches around the country:

 

“In response to the changing needs of the modern learner, we’re constantly looking at new ways of supporting coaches with new content in different formats.

 

“This MOOC is the first course we’re developing in partnership with the University of Birmingham and we’re really excited about its potential to offer a new way of supporting the development of grassroots coaches.”
