West Riding County FA Are Hosting An Inaugural Coaching Conference To Bring Together Coaches And Ideas.

We'll be hearing from some of the brightest minds from coaching and development, with a vast range of experiences and knowledge between them. Grassroots coaches of all levels are invited to spend the day in their company and gain new ideas for working with players at their own club.

The session will be focused on looking in depth at understanding behaviours and how we as coaches socially and emotionally support children and young people through a relational approach. We’ll look at the latest neuroscience behind child development, attachment research, and how to use creativity and the arts to socially engage children and young people to get their bodies and brain ready for learning.
