The FAW National Coaches Conference 2017 is open for booking

Here’s your full guide and how you get involved...

The online application process for the 2017 FAW National Conference is now open.

For one long weekend in May, coaches from across Wales will rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the game to discuss the future of coaching in the nation.

And you can be there too, whether you need to revalidate your coaching qualification or learn from some of the best coaches in the country.

While the National Coaches Conference is for everyone, its focus will be on the elite end of the game as it serves as a revalidation course for UEFA Pro, A and B Licence but it will also feature keynote speakers and coaches from the women and girls and the grassroots of the game.
