Why I Love Coaching Football

I love seeing players & teams improve, it's as simple as that. The moment when a player or group achieves something they've been working hard towards is priceless.

My Coaching Style & Session Delivery

I like players to explore football through guided discovery. I setup open activities where players can experiment and the results will often be different. I try to create an environment where the players have to communicate & problem solve together to get positive outcomes.

What I Look For In A Young Player

A hardworking individual that's isn't scared to try new things, make mistakes or push themselves towards difficult challenges. A player that puts the team first and will do anything to help their friends and coach on and off the pitch.

How I Judge A Successful Team

I don't judge success on wins, I judge the success of a team on how they act on & off the pitch. A successful team helps each other on the pitch regardless of the result. Success of the pitch is if the players like to hang out with each other outside of football. I love seeing new friendships grow through football.
