Forget systems, coaching should always be about the players and never the coach

I’m conscious that I write about coaching on these pages quite a lot, but it’s not the case that I’m claiming to be some sort of all-seeing, all-knowing Oracle.

I write about coaching because I’m passionate about it and appreciate how powerful it can be when it is done well.

I take great enjoyment from seeing people showing a desire to improve and deliver a better-quality environment for young people to develop while playing sports.
