Irish FA Goalkeepers Diploma

Irish FA Goalkeeping Diploma
The course will focus on:
• Coaching individual techniques and understanding the role of the goalkeeper within the team.
• Planning and preparing coaching sessions considering the goalkeeper’s specific needs.

A total of TWO practical assessments will be taken as follows:
• Assessment 1 will be arranged on a suitable date after the course
• Assessment 2 will be arranged on a suitable date after successful completion and submission of a coaching logbook and post course tasks.

A minimum of 20 hours of coaching goalkeeper sessions must be recorded and submitted. The Logbook is a record of how the coach planned, conducted and evaluated the sessions. It should display evidence of understanding the principles of goalkeeping within individual and team practices, as well the ability to assess the goalkeeper’s performance during matches. Post course tasks will also be assigned during the final day of the course.

The candidate must achieve a Pass Standard in the two practical assessments.
If the candidate fails to meet the required standard in the assessments, the candidate will be permitted a maximum of two further reassessments. There will be a charge for re-assessment.
Candidates have a maximum of two years from commencement of the Course to successfully complete the course requirements.

Candidates must attend all seminars during the 4-day course.
Sessions are timetabled from 09.00am to 19.00pm

The Logbook is to be completed and submitted via the Irish FA’s Online Education Platform. This platform enables candidates on the Irish FA’s courses to complete coursework tasks in electronic format, as well as session plans that enable candidates to illustrate their coaching sessions with professional, digital diagrams
