Being a coach doesn't require to be a good player at all.

The requirements to become a football coach vary, but a bachelor's degree in sport coaching education, physical education, or exercise and sports science is often required.

If you want to become a Pro Coach, then you will need to make bachelor's degree, more than likely. If you are in high school or college, my suggestion would be to "hunt" for a coach's assistant's place for the start, this would not require any degree.

but you would need skills like:

  • Understanding of the game
  • Being a good leader
  • Being very detail-oriented
  • Being an excellent communicator
  • Having physical stamina
  • Thanks for your help so I am thinking about to join local football club for some practice and understanding the game – user11262 May 1 '16 at 10:22
