The ‘YDF Manual for Coaches' is the main tool to realise the youth development objectives of the project

The ‘YDF Manual for Coaches’ is the main tool for realising the youth-development objectives of the project. Its aim is to show coaches and social workers how to integrate life skills into football sessions. This general basic training forms the foundation that equips coaches with all the knowledge they need to implement the YDF Toolkit training.

Key aspects of the YDF Manual for Coaches include:

  • raising awareness of the roles and responsibilities of the coach;
  • providing coaches with the basics on coaching and training aimed at children and youths of both genders and from different age groups; and
  • supplying coaches with knowledge on how to integrate life skills into football exercises by addressing topics such as fair play, health, the environment, violence prevention and youth participation.

This manual contains a wide range of worksheets, training sheets and tournament sheets to provide the coaches with practical methods for integrating the approach of ‘Youth Development through Football’ into football training sessions.
