Coaching Style

“To me having the opportunity to coach is amazing and I believe patience is a key factor when working with early years.

Throughout my Minisport sessions I use a ‘play not push’ coaching style which allows the children to improve their sporting ability, without feeling under unnecessary pressure. Enjoying sports and having fun is what it is all about.

At an early age, it is crucial for children to develop their physical and social wellbeing - and that’s really where our Minisport team excels.”
