Female Mentoring Programme

This pilot project commenced in 2012; with the aim of getting more females into Coaching. The selected coaches will be given formal assistance, observations, guidance and resources to help increase their knowledge of coaching and improve their teaching of the game. In-service sessions will be held specific to the needs of the coaches involved allowing them to expand their knowledge to suit the players and teams they work with.

DCFA Female Mentoring Programme

Using the expertise of FA mentors/tutors, coaches will access instruction and specific events to aid their continuing development within the field of coaching.

There is an open application process at present, but would hope coaches would meet the following criteria:
- Minimum coaching qualifications
- Actively coaching with a team
- A member of FA Licensed Coaches Club
- Ideally be working at a Dorset affiliated Charter Standard Club
The project is targeted at all Coaches that are not only passionate about coaching football but improving their delivery. You must have a desire to gain further knowledge and experiment with new methods and techniques to expand your existing understanding, and be open and approachable regarding having your sessions observed.
