Coaching In Schools

We have been providing football coaching in this school, Cedar House, weekly since we started in January, we are so proud that we can be able to provide this. This is a lovely quote from one of the teachers regarding this caoching:

 

"The training has been an excellent opportunity for our young people to firstly, get some exercise, but equally is to learn that teamwork and fun that are fundamental aspects of  participating in the training and the games played each week.


The coach, Tony, is skilled at understanding the needs of our vulnerable children, with praise, advise and constructive criticism when and where necessary.  (Sadly I must however point out that Tony incorrectly gave me a yellow card and on one occasion, he sent me off!!)
The children we work with are vulnerable, many challenged with complex needs, however all are treated as important valuable and respected members of the team.

I have been so impressed with the work by the Connor Saunders' Foundation, I have recommended them to the Pupil Refereal Units in Brighton and Hove, as well as independent organisations working with vulnerable adults across Brighton and Hove."
