Coach Education


‘I am currently a Reddish Vulcans football coach and was offered the opportunity to have some coach education/mentorship sessions during our team training sessions. At first, I was unsure what this would entail but after receiving more information about the coach and his session plan, I signed up as I couldn’t miss the opportunity. The session in general was fantastic and a definite eye opener. I coach, play and watch football but some of the ideas that were offered and explained have already had a positive impact on our team and has also helped me to understand the game and my players even more than I previously did. The session has really opened my eyes into what is needed to progress to the next level and if the opportunity arises again, I will be definitely attending’

Player Education


‘I really appreciate you coaching me and being there for me. When you first started to coach me, my dad said to me that he really can tell that you think I have a special talent. Thank you!’

‘Michael was able to understand the boys individually based on their personality and identify their strengths and areas of improvement. Michael took my son under his wing during a period when he was not enjoying his football, identified the underlying issues and acted by motivating/mentoring my son in the U14 group where he was able to express himself and develop.
He showed tremendous ability in working with all the players to get the most out of them in both personality and talent.’
