Football Netball, All the emotions of life are here.

Youth coaching in sport can, should and must develop the physical, tactical, technical/ skill, but also the social and the emotional. It must be a holistic practice and must start and finish with the Youth. Common wisdom tells us it is good for the youngster to be part of a team sport, but I feel we have no idea how powerful it can be and rarely appreciate its true scope. It is beyond question that the coach can have a powerful positive effect on all areas of the youngsters life; the power of ‘One Good Adult’

It goes without saying that if we are doing virtually any type of exercise with them, it will have a positive physical effect in the short term. We can do so much more. We can develop the youngster so they go on to become self-aware, confident, and happy youth/adults/players.

We can give them every chance at success in sport and in life. We can play our part in enhancing society. The non-physical qualities we can develop through a youth centred holistic approach to coaching far exceed the physical and technical qualities. Coached properly, the youngster who is turning into the teen will reach the ‘new start of the beginning’
