The PFA Coaching Department are delighted to be continuing their partnership with The Coaching Manual, an important tool which helps enhance the online delivery of the PFA’s coaching courses. 

The Coaching Manual (TCM) is a resource built for soccer coaches who want to improve their understanding of coaching, find real practical sessions which they can use, and accelerate the development of their players by creating a first-class soccer learning environment.

During the partnership, the PFA’s coaching staff and members have been able to utilise our access to the world's largest library of coach and player education content, and a suite of tools to help coaches deliver a consistently brilliant learning experience, TCM is the leading online soccer education resource.

The wealth of broadcast-quality video content available on TCM is suitable for coaches of all levels, from beginner and recreational coaches to those working in the professional game. 

As well as world-leading content, TCM's practice design and season planning tools, help coaches use their time efficiently and effectively, ensuring players get the most out of every session.

Julian Hayes, PFA Coaching Office Manager: “The team in the PFA coaching department are delighted to be continuing our successful partnerships with The Coaching Manual for another year. TCM have been a valuable part of our delivery to members on our coaching courses and a great tool for any developing coach to use.”
