Our Coaching Philosophy

Our philosophy is derived from a combination of research and time spent coaching, we believe in practice and guided discovery, we encourage creativity and problem solving. To further this we believe contact time is crucial and where possible we try to ensure each child has as much exposure to practice as possible, for example if the sport in question was basketball each child will at some point have a ball each, this increases the number of touches of the ball and therefore more time to practice a particular technique, allowing the child to achieve.
