Course reviews

Really simple effective drill, looking forward to running with our girls.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

Once again you’ve shown me something new that I can add to my coaching ‘toolkit’ and it is so well explained and modelled. Well done.


Really helped me understand what I am seeing when I watch the game now.


Superb game. Really like the transition from skill development into competitive situation with plenty of thinking and problem solving for the players. An excellent practice that I will certainly be using.


Perhaps giving the players opportunities to develop their A and D for themselves.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

Very good game, atention defence, quick reposition


I like the Chaos game in particular. It identifies weaknesses but allows players to train and thrive in Chaos.


What a great exercise, always looking for fun games to promote thinking with the ball and without the ball. Awesome!


Great game!!! Way to set a drill-game-drill dynamic, working on technique and game sense
