At the beginning of the 2017 season we kicked off the INSPIRE coach support program as a means of supporting the 1,100+ coaches throughout NSFA on a weekly basis. Over the course of the season we managed to smash through the #TARGET100, reaching 248 coaches as part of the program. Each week members of INSPIRE received an e-newsletter containing relevant session plans, session plan videos, player development videos, coaching tips, football related articles and a blog post as part of our Inspire BLOG.
INSPIRE aims to provide coaches of all levels access to a platform that will host coaching resources, video content and discussion forums to assist coaches in their season-long journey. Our mission is to better the footballing experience of both the coach and players by providing relevant, progressive and easy to digest content.
