Course reviews

Today i used banking and broad plain game for 10 12 yrs old. Very good session. Kids really joined in and big positive gain in thinking and decision making. Also big learning curve for my peer coaches and myself. We will absolutely integrate this style in our training programme.


Great video. It shows the level of engagement that can be created to teach decision making at different times.


Great video, with great ideas for engaging kids while practising their decision-making, communication and ball skills.


Love the way he has the players create conditions in the game. I want to be this smooth with game-based coaching.
