If you want to be part of our growing community of qualified coaches then the best place to start is with a coaching course.
The Scottish FA operates four coach education pathways:
- Children's (for coaches working with 5-12 year olds)
- Youth (for coaches working with 12-18 years olds)
We also offer courses for youth directors and for coaches working with players with a disability.

Our coach education courses incorporate the Positive Coaching Scotland philosophy.
