more clarity on the topic than before they arrived
⚠️ WARNING ⚠️
These events are for coaches who truly care about their development. If travelling a couple of hours to watch a Gymnastics Masterclass and accelerate your coaching development for the cost of a couple of takeaway's doesn't excite you and seems like effort, then you might not be the best fit.
'The more you learn, the more results you earn!'
We're aiming to change the way you coach forever; the more 'lightbulb moments' you have at our events the better, and we'll celebrate them when you do [if you want to!]
Thanks for making it this far down the page. If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you're interested in what these events can offer and how they can support your coaching.
I'm often asked about my journey as a coach, and how I found myself in national coaching roles and supporting some of the world's leading teams at such a young age.
The answer is always linked to education and mentorship.
Having chosen to invest as much as I could in rubbing shoulders with the most experienced coaches I could find, I expedited my development and value as a coach, and the results soon followed.
These events are an opportunity for you to make that same investment, and I hope to see you there.
