He has a psychology Diploma and recognises some important factors in developing children’s interest in football, which he will continue to implement during his coaching sessions, which include.
Enjoyment – Each session is planned to ensure all participants are included in all exercises no matter their footballing ability; We slowly introduce some technical drills into the session while always focusing on the enjoyment that will increase the child’s chance of retaining interest.
Enthusiasm – We will always use a positive and enthusiastic manner with the children at all times no matter what.
Teamwork & Confidence Building – Children can often be delicate and it can take time for them to come out of their shell, my sessions are non-pushy and aim to incorporate drills, which build confidence and teamwork amongst the group.
Playing Condition – During the summer months we will be playing in the park but during the winter months we will have a base at a local school indoor to ensure all children remain warm.
