All Touchline Soccer Schools coaches are Football Association qualified to Level One, Two or Three. They are vastly experienced, working with children at all ability levels on Holiday Camps, in schools and at local clubs.


It is mandatory that all coaches have been cleared to work with children through an enhanced DBS check and that they have attended both Safeguarding Children workshops and Emergency Aid courses. All our coaches have these minimum requirements.
