Coaching the Foundation Phase

Ready, Set, Go! Fresh into the starting blocks, youngsters roll up at sporting facilities across the world to play the game they have maybe watched on TV or encouraged to explore a new sport. These foundation years are the starting point of every child that plays the game.

The coaches who sit alongside these age groups are the critical influencers in their future. We are role models and often on reflection their heroes who impact their vision, belief and love of the game. Promoting and encouraging players strengths into super strengths will continually push their self-awareness and also their self-belief.

"The people we have in front of us aren't adults and their not playing the adult game. The game they play should fit like a shoe, snug but enough room for movement without drowning."
