ONE10SPORT Football Academy and College bridges the gap between being an amateur player or coach, and realising the dream of becoming a professional in your respective field.
In recent years, we have enjoyed a very fruitful partnership with the Scottish Football Association, allowing our College to facilitate the delivery of the Scottish FA Football Coach Education Courses in Southern Africa, Lesotho.
What does this partnership mean for you as an aspiring football manager?
The partnership is hugely significant for all aspiring coaches, African and global, as it is now possible and viable to complete your Scottish FA C License Coaching Course on home soil in Maseru, Lesotho at a fraction of the fee (roughly one third) compared to completing the identical qualification abroad.
Are there pre-requisites (certain requirements) for an aspiring coach to attend?
No, all coaches, experienced or not, are accepted and welcomed onto the course and guided through each step by the Scottish FA instructors. The courses are structured from introductory level, gradually moving up towards the more advanced tactical components of the C License Course. Participants are provided with digital study material and all the support they need to ensure that they are adequately prepared to move up the qualification ladder.
Does this qualification make one eligible to complete the UEFA B License?
Yes, in May every year, we offer coaches who have completed their Scottish FA C License in Lesotho, the opportunity to attend the UEFA B License in Scotland at the Heriot-Watt University Oriam Centre in Edinburgh.
The Football Academy prides itself on professional coaching, which is a direct result of only employing highly qualified coaching staff, all of whom have relevant sporting degrees, as well as being accredited or mentored according to Scottish FA best practices.
The importance of quality coaching, positive reinforcement, an encouraging environment and proven training techniques cannot be emphasised enough and this is what puts ONE10SPORT on the front foot of football development across all ages.
We are Cape Town based, in the beautiful and sort after area of Claremont and we look forward to welcoming your aspiring players to our academy. All players of all skill levels are encouraged to enrol and we will ensure that your child/children are placed in an environment and team that suits their specific development stage.
ONE10SPORT Football Academy is a positive and happy place for coaches, players and parents and we are always looking to grow our family.
