Lions Sports Academy, lead by CEO Andy Jones, performed a coaching masterclass at Wimbledonian Warriors on Wednesday evening. All coaches from Wimbledonian Warriors and other clubs were invitied along to learn about new drills that they could use when coaching or improve already existing drills that they are using.
It was a fantastic evening and all the coaches responded positivley to the session put on by Andy. The masterclass was centred around coaches for U11-U13 and each of them was required to bring along a drill and perform it to the rest of the group. Every person who attended had the chance to perform a drill and receive feedback from the rest of the group on how they could improve in their coaching.
The masterclass was split into three sections. The first being a welcome and outline of the session, then the coaches moved into an examples session in which they went through example games for U11-U13 and the coaches refereed these matches, and finally the last part of the masterclass was the coaching session in which all the coaches brought along a game to perform to the rest of the group, as mentioned earlier. The evening was concluded with a quick debrief, followed by a trip to the club bar.
Overall, it was a very productive evening and not just the coaches, but also ourselves took many positives from the evening. It was great to be given the opportunity to talk to so many coaches and perform this masterclass and we hope that we will be able to return to Wimbledonian Warriors and many other clubs to perform similar masterclasses in the future.
