Lionesses Coach Development Programme

Are you a female coach who is interested in developing your practice?



The Lionesses Coach Development programme provides an opportunity for female coaches wanting to improve their coaching confidence and knowledge. The programme will provide three FREE workshops aimed at bringing together female coaches to engage with qualified tutors. Workshops will entail a blend of theory and practical based sessions to link to their own coaching environments, with each workshop having a unique coaching topic. The workshops will help supplement the main Coach the Coach programme delivered year-round by Northumberland FA.

Suey Smith (FA Regional Women and Girls Coach Development Officer) and Lloyd Miller (Football Development Officer – Women and Girls) will tutor on each workshop throughout this programme.

Sign up here.


A clear mission of Northumberland FA is to bring the Inspiring Positive Change strategy to life in our County. One of eight points contained within the strategy which we hope to achieve surrounds ensuring we have high standards of coaching practice throughout the women’s game underpinned by a thirst for ongoing learning, critical thinking and knowledge sharing”. As we look ahead towards the remainder of this years’ programme, we will see new coaching themes covered in two final workshops with an ever-growing female coach audience.

We encourage any female coaches interested in the programme to contact Lloyd Miller directly at
