Course reviews

Very Good ideas and simple example. Good to see coach getting players to self evaluate.


Nice fillers for young players … could also use for more advanced players too. Keeps the game fun

New Zealand

Ben’s games with kids are very informative

South Africa

Really love what they had to say, I’ve been trying for years to become more games based as opposed to drill focused practice, as was my own youthful experience. Thank you.
