For coaches of all levels who want to learn more and develop their ability, the Coaches Conference provides a perfect opportunity to observe high level coaches, and talk with others about their experiences.
This year’s conference will be themed around Developing Creative Players, showcasing the techniques and methods coaches can use to create players who are comfortable with the ball at their feet and have the ability to make decisions quickly.
We are delighted to announce the first tutor of this year’s conference:

Kelvin and Chris’ session will look at a whole-part-whole session with a focus on disguising passes, receiving in pockets of space, breaking lines and 1v1 dribbling skills.
