Activity: Other activity types › Industry Links and Experience
I was invited to be part of the England Futsal U19 staff team as a Coach Observer/Developer during the European Championships in Italy. My role included taking part in all staff (and player) meetings to observe and support key areas based on the team's identified needs. I worked very closely with the Head Coach during meetings and official matches against Turkey, Czech Republic and Italy. We engaged in a 'coaching' like cycle including identifying needs, observing the coach in practice and noticing key aspects related to their chosen focus, exploring videos of coaching practice, reflective conversations and informal/formal meetings. There is an ongoing relationship towards the development of a framework to guide coaching practice within England Futsal.
