Coaches who previously completed the course said this:

“It was a great course, even though I am not new to coaching, per se, there is a fresh perspective to this course which is really good – and I like that. I think this course would suit everyone”.

“My coaching style has changed to reflect a player-centered approach, it’s the reminder to keep coming back to this and keep asking myself – how is this benefiting the child”. 

“I am more confident now and will take on more coachingroles within my club”.
