Coaching is a rewarding pastime and part of our DNA is to empower coaches and develop the next generation of young coaches . We want Hawks Players to be future coaches and encourage young adults to become involved.


Our goal is to:

  • Help coaches understand how they can foster quality motivation

  • Provide coaches with strategies for promoting a more empowering climate and making youth sport more engaging and enjoyable.


This should lead to a number of positive outcomes for young people, including:

  • Improved Health

  • Promoting physical activity

  • Enhanced fitness levels

  • Avoiding substance use (e.g., tobacco)

  • Improved Well-being

  • Enjoyment of sport

  • Self-esteem

  • Vitality

  • Reduced anxiety


We encourage our coaches to develop in order to help them to begin shaping or refining their own coaching philosophy. 

We want our coaches to educate themselves and become actively involved in the grassroots coaching community and become FA Licensed Coaches in order to attend the many CPD events to enhance their learning experiences.

In order to understand the coaching of players, coaches need to understand themselves, their players and the game itself.

Our ethos is allowing players to feel included, empowered and to be able to make mistakes so coaches need to be able to design relevant game-like practices with plenty of decision-making that enables the players to practice in an environment that’s positive and enjoyable.

We want all our coaches to be committed to the FA Coaching Pathway and especially the FA Youth Awards at Level 1 & 2 as these are designed with young players in mind.

A Win at All or Any Cost coaching approach is not what we are looking for as success can be measured in many other ways in youth sport beyond the scoreboard or league table .
