summer football coaching prject

Their story, in their words…

“The project was meant to be just for the summer holidays, just 5 weeks consisting of 10 sessions, but it turned out to be something much, much bigger than I expected. We had 30+ registered participants from the community between the ages of 8-14. We decided to enter our under 13’s into a league. A lot of time and planning has been put into and I’ve had so much support from volunteers and parents, which I’m grateful for… My aim was to provide a platform to allow players to develop that will continue to be my aim not only for the players, the coaches as well. For me the project was an experience I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to replace. The project gave me a chance to develop as a coach and leader, because I’ve never really been in complete control of something like this before.”
