Why Amy Coaches?
"Ever since I was young, I have had a huge passion for sports and competition. I have played many different sports growing up, my favourites being Hockey, Rounders, Football and Athletics. My passion for sport was fostered by several inspirational people and teachers who taught me what sports are really about. I have always known that I have wanted to work with children and to be able to work with them in a sporting environment is a dream come true. I would like to be that inspirational person and role model for the young children of today, so that they are able to grow up loving sport as much as I do!
Coaching is so rewarding in so many ways. Working with children who are keen to learn, improve and achieve is both inspiring and motivating. I love competition and I love to win but more importantly I love seeing children grow and develop, not just as players but as people too. I wouldn't choose any other career. "
