Calling all coaches

3rd April 2018

Swansea City has launched its first coach identity programme allowing up-and-coming coaches to volunteer within the club’s category one academy.

The programme will provide individuals with the opportunity to work closely with academy coaches and demonstrate their coaching abilities with a variety of age groups, including pre-academy (U6s-U8s), foundation (U9s-U11s) and youth (U12s-U16s).

The aim is to identify coaches for future roles at Swansea City.

If you have a passion for coaching, currently hold or are working towards a Uefa B licence and are looking for ways to progress into a role at a category one academy, this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

This is an unpaid voluntary position and time commitment will be minimal. Those who are selected to join the programme will be asked to attend up to two sessions per month.

To Apply:

Please forward a CV outlining your current coaching qualifications and experience to:

Roy Thomas, Head of Academy Coaching, Swansea City Academy, Beaufort Road Plasmarl, Swansea SA6 8AX or email

The closing date for applications will be Friday, April 13.

If you are selected, you will be required to attend an introductory workshop on Monday, April 21.

Once you have applied for this role, you are required to complete an equal opportunities survey to allow the club to monitor the diversity of its applicants. The survey will take less than five minutes and can be accessed by clicking HERE
