Coach Education and Support

The BBDFL is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Jack Walton and Nigel Gleghorn to develop a coach education programme for our members and the wider grassroots community.


Jack Walton has many years experience at the FA and club level and others have described him as follows:


Jack's talent, prowess and innovation extend across many areas:

-     inspirational educator, facilitator and youth football coach

-     insightful podcast host

-     thought-provoking writer

-     digital innovator


During over a decade working together at the Football Association Jack has stood out for his willingness to innovate and embrace change.


An early champion of digital learning, Jack was one of the first to push for coach education utilising Youtube, podcasts and filmed coach education - projects which are now being implemented.


I would recommend the following articles to get a sense of Jack's work:
