A must listen for any youth football coach!
I’ve been coaching for 3.5 yrs and wish I’d listened to this podcast when I first started - it should be compulsory for all youth coaches! You can spend hours reading things online but the podcast format makes it easy to engage with. It’s great for generating ideas and for thinking about your own approach to coaching a youth football team. The episode on footballing philosophy should be on the FA’s courses! Thanks for creating this
Really enjoyed listening, can’t wait to hear the next one!
Very knowledgeable and helpful. I am starting out as a youth football coach and this podcast has helped me so much already.
I can’t wait for the next episode.
