Brian and Barry are absolutely delighted that they have passed the UEFA ‘B’ license part 1 football coaching course in Belfast last month. In attendance, there were 30 coaches from different parts of the world including America, Canada, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Italy, Qatar, England, Ireland and of course Northern Ireland.

The course was held at Queens Sports Complex Upper Malone Road for a whole week.  The IFA staff coaches were very supportive and taught with an excellent attitude which made the course enjoyable.

Participating in the course was a massive learning curve for Brian and Barry. They learnt a wide range of coaching techniques and methods.

They are looking forward to delivering new training drills with young deaf players so they can pass on their knowledge and skills to the next generation of young deaf footballers.
