Player Welfare course

Player Welfare in Open-age Football Course

The Player Welfare in Open-age Football e-learning module is now live

The free, online course takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and covers what player welfare is, why it’s important and how to support players.

The content focuses on some of the key issues that can impact player welfare including safeguarding, misconduct, physical and digital environments, medical concerns, equality, diversity and inclusion, mental health, domestic abuse, reporting concerns and signposting. 

Integral to this is the recognition that open-age football teams may have under-18 players.


The course is linked to a new welfare tab on the England Football Learning website that will carry further support and signposting information, which will be built upon over time.
