To start a junior football team you don't need any qualifications nor have taken any courses, all you need is a general understanding of football and lots of enthusiasm.
Many clubs however, and especially Charter Standard clubs insist that their coaches take part in the FA's Level 1 Coaching course, which gives the new football loach and introduction to organising a safe and fun training session and is geared towards coaching football to children as well as adults.
The FA provide a whole range of courses from the basic Level 1 course to the UEFA 'A' License, among others.
