In this episode we discuss how coaches can best support and develop young grassroot players. Paul Barry, who has extensive coaching experience at the foundation and youth development phase, shares his thoughts ideas and experiences.
Paul talks about the characteristics of grassroots players, what makes a good coach, the power of empathy and his G.O.A.L philosophy. Paul also gives us an insight into coaching workshops designed specifically to support grassroots clubs.
To find out more about these workshops and the wonderful work Paul is doing you can reach him on twitter @PBazza07 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
