About me.

Having played sport since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, I have found myself in a multitude of game situations. These situations have, ultimately, resulted in me becoming a well-rounded and capable coach, with a broad repertoire of experience to offer.

Over the past eight years, I have enjoyed working with children and athletes of different ages, abilities and personalities; coaching internationally in Africa, France, England, Wales and the USA.

I always strive to find the best in any child or athlete and I believe in highlighting the lessons learned, in sport, to help with situations they will face later in life.

I believe that no athlete deserves to be spoken down to, that all people are equal and that even the youngest children deserve the opportunity to be treated with respect.

I don’t believe in shouting for the sake of hearing my own voice or to satisfy a need to feel powerful. There is a time and place for shouting and a time and place for silence and thought. When coaching, I focus on using the appropriate technique to benefit the team and the individual players.

In my life, both as an athlete and a coach I give all that I have, every day.

I have never lost sight of where I came from or of what my sport has done for me. That said, I acknowledge that even today, I still have much to learn.

I am always looking at ways of improving and developing and I do my best to pass this on to the players I coach.
