I WOULD SAY THE FACT THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS LEARN MORE AND NEVER KNOW EVERYTING. THERE IS NO WRONG OR RIGHT IN SPORT JUST DIFFERENT WAYS OF DOING IT.

YOU HAVE TO BE SEFLESS, CARING, HELPFUL, WILLING TO FIGHT FOR EACH OTHER, GENEROUS, ENCOURAGE AND HAVE A GOOD WORK ETHIC. 
 
WHY DO YOU FEEL THAT COMMUNITY COACHING HAS AN IMPORTANT PART TO PLAY IN OUR COMMUNITIES? 
HUGE! IT IS AN INTEGRAL STEP IN THE PATHWAY TO ELITE SPORTS. IT IS THE FOREFRONT FOR TALENT TO EMERGE FROM AND PLAYS A BIG PART IN THE LEARNING PATH OF INDIVIDUALS.

MANCHESTER UTD AND HENRY! FERGUSON MY INSPIRATION AT THE TIME AND HNERY BECAUSE HE MADE IT LOOK SO SIMPLE.

WHAT WOULD BE THE ONE BIT OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO HAS ASPIRATIONS TO BE A PROFESSIONAL SPORTS PERSON?
