"I love coaching for the enjoyment the kids get out of it.

They keep turning up every week and they always enjoy it. It's just great.

I'm always looking for new ideas to help keep the kids involved, keep their enthusiasm up and keep them coming back.

I love sharing ideas with other coaches and adapting them for my own players."
