Gemma Grainger: Football Coach, Tees Valley

First Coach to register on North East Coach and Leader

Gemma Grainger, the only female FA L4 qualified coach in the North East shows her support & is the first coach to register on Tees Valley Coach & Leader Web!!

Born & bred in the Tees Valley, Gemma is the only female coach in the whole of the North East who is UEFA A Level 4 qualified coach which is the highest practical coaching award available.

She is currently the Head Coach FA U15s Girls’ Elite Performance (North), Technical Director Teesside Girls Centre of Excellence and Great Britain Universities Women Head Coach but her impressive previous coaching experience also includes being Leeds United Ladies First Team Manager, Head Coach Middlesbrough Centre of Excellence Under 16 squad & Middlesbrough Centre of Excellence Director as well as many other roles undertaken in her coaching career.

Since starting coaching at the age of 18 Gemma has progressed to now having a full time coaching career at an elite level in female football and she recognises the importance of being part of Tees Valley Coach, Leader & Volunteer Web to help people achieve their sporting ambition.

Gemma says:

“Having a one stop shop for all coaching, leading & volunteer  through Tees Valley Coach, Leader & Volunteer Web will give people involved in sport immediate, free and easy access to all the support, information & opportunities that will help them reach their personal goals.  It is a great way to feel connected to a support system for people delivering sport of all ages, abilities and experience across all sports in the Tees Valley and across the United Kingdom. It is nice to know that this support is available and I would encourage anyone who is involved in delivery sports to register so they can benefit from being involved in the Tees Valley coaching community”

Thank you to Tees Valley Sport for allowing us ot use this case study.
