Coaching Assistants

Details Hide[-]

LHPFC are looking for a committed and well-organised individual who, under the supervision of our Development Coaching Team, will be an assistant coach assigned to a specific year group for the 2019/20 football season. While we work with a number of FA trained coaches and referees, we would like to offer this opportunity to all students who have a love of the game!


You will be a clear communicator with a good knowledge of the rules of football. You will be able to work well with children from ages 4 to 15, as well as other members of our coaching team. You will have clear ideas about how our young players can develop their skills while still enjoying the game.


While there is no minimum in terms of commitment, we would ask that you regularly attend training sessions to help our coaching team. For those who want to work with us in the long-term, we will be providing DBS checks and possible funding for FA Level 1 coaching training.
