Coaching Journey: Week 1 - Engaging Players

Updated: Oct 27, 2023

I've got some exciting news to share. I'm about to kick off a fantastic journey as I begin my 'Introduction to Coaching Football' qualification next Wednesday, 1st November. This opportunity means the world to me, and I can't wait to take you along with me on this coaching adventure.

Week 1: Engaging Players

The first week of this course is all about one of the most crucial aspects of coaching - engaging with players. It's not just about teaching them how to play; it's about igniting their passion and creating a positive connection between the coach and the team. This is the foundation for a successful coaching journey, and I'm thrilled to delve into it headfirst.

Motivation and Player-Ownership

In the coming week, I'll be exploring the intricacies of motivation and the practices that encourage player-ownership and positivity. It's all about understanding what drives each player and how we, as coaches, can foster their love for the game. Every player is unique, and my aim is to be adaptable in my coaching approach to cater to their individual motivations.

Equality and Inclusivity

One thing that's extremely close to my heart is ensuring that football remains a game free from discrimination. At NexxtGen Football, we believe that every individual, regardless of their background, deserves the chance to create cherished football memories. Inclusivity and fairness are values I'm deeply passionate about, and I'll be carrying this message forward in my coaching journey.

My Excitement and Dedication

I can't begin to express how thrilled I am to get started on this coaching adventure. It's a dream come true, and I'm dedicated to making the most of this opportunity. But my ambitions don't stop at personal growth. I plan to apply the knowledge and insights I gain from this qualification to benefit the young footballers I work with at CHARS Youth FC and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

I'm eager to make a positive impact, not only in my own development but also in the lives of the players I coach. Football is a beautiful game, and I'm committed to making it even more accessible, engaging, and enjoyable for everyone involved.

As I embark on this journey, I'll be sharing my experiences, learnings, and the progress I make. Coaching is a continuous process, and I'm excited to learn, grow, and ultimately, become a better coach. Thank you for joining me on this adventure - it's going to be an incredible ride!

Let's go!!!

Best wishes
