The European Billiards & Snooker Association Coaching Foundation have just announced EBSA Head of Coaching PJ Nolan will hold an EBSA Coaching Course in the Dunstable Snooker Club in England on the 22nd, 23rd, 24th of October 2019.

Would you like to attend a Course?

If you would like to attend this coaching course in the Dunstable Snooker Club, you need to ask your NGB to nominate you in writing to the secretary of the EBSA and complete the application form.  

Only NGB approved coaches can become EBSA coaches. Once approval is received back from the EBSA you must then arrange payment of €250.00 to the EBSA to secure your place.

The Course fees

The Course in the Dunstable Snooker Club is limited to the maximum of 6 persons. The cost per person is €250.00 and this includes training for three days, CD with all the files from the course and 2-year EBSA membership which includes your EBSA polo shirt and coaching card. 

Only prepaid people will be accepted for the course and only a maximum of eight people will be on each course. The duration of the course will be from 10am-5pm each day. This payment needs to be sent directly to the EBSA. The EBSA will advise you how to send payment.

Course Aim

There are a number of aims we would like to achieve during this EBSA training course:

Day 1: Role of Coach, Techniques, Demonstration of Shots, Good Coach v Bad Coach.

Day 2: Training Programs, Analysis of a player, Use of technology.

Day 3: Written Exam, Planning Session, Practical Exam on the table and plan the probation period for your homework assignments.  

The EBSA Coaching Foundation will aim to offer each country a consistency of high-class coach training and this accreditation to the EBSA will prove to be something that all coaches will be proud to have achieved.

Three steps to attend the course

1.  Ask your own National Governing Body to write to the EBSA nominating you to attend the course to be trained in becoming an EBSA Coach.

2. Complete the Application forms and email them to EBSA Secretary, Simon Smith

3. Once you receive confirmation from the EBSA. Arrange payment of €250.00 to the EBSA

Places are limited as only eight paid up coaches can only attend this EBSA course but I am sure everyone will enjoy the journey of becoming an accredited EBSA Coach.
