Clubs can sign up for free FA support webinars in June


Grassroots football clubs are being urged to sign up for free FA support webinars this month.

A full range of sessions for June has been confirmed, led by Rus Smith, an FA clubs consultant who is also a coaching and football lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton.

As part of a commitment to ensuring support services are suitable and relevant for clubs or leagues of all sizes, the free webinar series enables volunteers to access relevant content in the comfort of their own homes, led by experts on each topic.

The regular webinars are co-presented by volunteers from clubs who share their stories and experiences, followed by an open discussion towards the end of the session where volunteers can ask questions to both the expert and the club.

The weekly webinars all run from 8-9.30pm and you can register at
