The Diggers join forces with TCM

We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with The Coaching Manual in order to support our coaches with the world’s best tools and digital training content.

The Coaching Manual is a resource built for soccer coaches who want to improve their understanding of coaching, find real practical sessions which they can use, and accelerate the development of their players by creating a first-class soccer learning environment.

Chris Barton, founder of The Coaching Manual, said: “The Coaching Manual was built to make top coaching content available to everyone, whether they are a student, volunteer, or working in the professional game.

“Our objective is to inspire coaches and players around the world to fall in love with football like we did. We are proud of what we have built, and proud of the fact we are able to help thousands of coaches around the world every single day.”

The wealth of broadcast-quality video content available on The Coaching Manual includes a series of masterclasses delivered by some of the most highly respected coaches in the game, recorded in partnership with the League Managers Association.

The platform also features a number of professional tools, such as the session and diagram creators, sharable folders and club organisational tools, and The Coaching Manual’s intuitive Season Planner.

Glasnevin’s Director of Football Matthew Nugent added: “There was no hesitation on the club’s behalf to renew our partnership with The Coaching Manual (TCM) when the opportunity arose. We found the digital training content impressive when we first signed up, and it is now the industry leader.”

He added: “We have earmarked the 2022/23 season specifically as one when we commit considerable funds towards making all the tools available to our coaches to develop their talents. TCM ticks all the necessary boxes.”

The Coaching Manual is trusted by coaches, clubs, and organisations around the world from grassroots to elite level, including Southampton FC, Sheffield United, Rangers FC, the American Youth Soccer Organization, Chicago Fire, and more. The platform is also used by high-profile professional players in England training to be coaches through The Coaching Manual’s partnership with the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA).
