What is your coaching background?

Coaching began when I went to specialist PE college for 3 years at 18. All students had to coach a variety of sports. My first coaching began in London where I taught. I coached mainly Basketball and Netball to youngsters from a variety of schools.I always enjoyed seeing youngsters improve and get the joy out of playing as I always had. It's about giving something back.

Was there someone you looked up to or inspired you to coach when you were younger?

My PE Teacher
