What are coaches saying about our online courses?

Foundations of Session Design

The course has taught me to look more closely and critically at my own training. I hope that in the future I will be able to tailor my training even better to the age groups that attend my training sessions. This course is extremely suitable for the starting trainer/coach but is also very useful for more experienced trainers. In any case, I learned a lot from it!

Introduction to Soccer Coaching

One of the best online courses available with World Class instructors assisting you along the way to have a clear understanding of coaching and development . If you are new to coaching or would like to refresh you skill base I would highly recommend this course.

Foundations of Session Design

Great course content, valuable for coaches of all levels, whether that's reminders on the basics or ideas not seen or used before - it's a great blend. Looking forward to researching the additional resources on specific topics that inspired me to look deeper, especially into the individual learning plans. Well done!
