Private Providers

What is it...

Manchester FA’s Private Provider membership is the first of its kind in the area. It is a kitemark that shows an organisations commitment to providing high quality private coaching. This will serve as an assured recommendation for high quality coaching that is safe, progressive and enjoyable.

This membership is being introduced to support parents, schools, local authorities and clubs who engage with private providers to ensure that the organisation they are considering is safe, insured and offers the high quality of coaching provision they would expect.
