John McCrimmond, SYFA Chairman, said: "On behalf of The Scottish Youth FA, we are delighted to enter a partnership with The Coaching Manual (TCM). This will without a doubt offer our Grassroots coaches an invaluable tool to aid developing and delivering sessions. Coupled alongside a fantastic library resource, their easy to navigate platform provides our coaches and members with great new opportunities. 

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.

As well as providing the world's best tools and resources for individual coaches, The Coaching Manual offers holistic club packages, which support organisations in the development and deployment of curriculums, player pathway programs, full season strategies, and much more. Club packages also come with expert support to ensure coaches and players are getting the most out of the platform.

The Coaching Manual founder Chris Barton said: “We’re delighted to partner with the Scottish Youth Football Association, and support them in their mission to deliver the best and most relevant football education to coaches and players throughout Scotland.

"The Coaching Manual is the perfect platform for clubs and coaches to learn from expert youth developers, communicate curriculums and philosophies, and boost their overall offering within their communities. We have a fantastic track record of working with clubs from the Scottish Premier League down to some of the most well known Grassroots Clubs in the country, helping them support their coaches/volunteers with the best possible resources - and we’re excited to get the opportunity to support SYFA clubs in the same way.”
