Coach Education Testimonials
My son has recently started attending Pav's weekly training sessions at Aylsham High School and already we have seen an improvement in his confidence and play. He also just finished the 4-day summer camp at the FDC in Costessey and thoroughly enjoyed himself. Thank you, Pav and team... Wouldn't hesitate to recommend! 10/10
My son has just attended a camp and I have to say it was brilliant, the effort and attention to detail that was put in place was outstanding. Everything was thought about from body movement to positive thinking as well as excellent game coaching. My son has been talking every evening about his experience and is wholly enthused. Well done
My son Oliver attended Pavs football camp this week and truly enjoyed the four days with great coaching throughout. Pav and the team truly get the best out of the boys
Just to let you know my boys have had a fantastic 4 days this week at your camp. They have learned lots and have smiled all the way through even when it was raining, they have come home every evening explaining what they have learned and how it will benefit them when playing for their teams. I am gutted that the next 2 camps the boys have other activities booked, as they would have been there too! Thank you so much for putting a structured and enjoyable course together.
Zaki has learnt so much in just the short space of time he has been with you. Thank you.
Thank you for the last few weeks. Both Harrison and Dylan have really enjoyed your sessions. Once again, Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you again as my boys have really enjoyed your sessions, and it's been great to see them grow in confidence too.
As a football coach, Pawel has the ‘X-Factor’; that special quality that is hard to explain in words, but shines through so clearly when you see him coach. Having seen Pawel coach over the summer, I invited him to work with our U9 team for a block of 6 sessions. Our goal was very specific: we wanted to help our players become better decision makers and specially to develop their understanding of when to keep the ball and when to pass. As inexperienced coaches, we also wanted Pawel to act as a mentor to us, to help us grow that bit more as coaches. My already high expectations of what Pawel could help us achieve were not only met, but exceeded. His sessions were focused, engaging, and progressive, and our players responded brilliantly to his style of coaching. In a short space of time, under Pawel’s guidance, they evolved into a group of players capable of making much better decisions, which has transformed how they play and perform as a team on the pitch. It has been a real joy to watch that evolution take place, and I am very grateful to Pawel for what he has achieved with the team in such a short space of time. But perhaps more important is the way in which Pawel has shown us as a coaching team what it is that we could and should be striving for. Until I worked with Pawel, I didn’t realise how limited my coaching perspective was. I thought I was doing a good job. But Pawel made me realise I could evolve my coaching to a whole new level. He has shifted my coaching perspective in so many ways, not just in terms of how to plan and deliver sessions, but also the vital importance of understanding how children learn and how to communicate effectively with them. In short, Pawel has shown us a new and better path to take as coaches and I am confident we will never look back from that. Pawel’s expert input has been invaluable and if you want to improve your players - and improve yourself as a coach - then I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Glen Matten, Cringleford Rovers U9s
I have been coaching for 3 years and am nearing completion of L2. My coaching ethos aims to develop my team and players, to be the best that they can be. My team are currently U10's, I've been with them since U7, but have had a fair turnover of players during that time. This year we had an influx of 5 new players, resulting in a mix of technical skills and match experience. I was also finding it hard to control a large group in training and retain interest levels (I regularity have 10-13 players). With hindsight, I was also trying to do too much too early and to be honest, getting frustrated and a bit demoralised at times. I had some experience of Pawel helping me and my team during FA events and had watched his levels of control and the interest that he generated with my players. Once I found out that he offered a package of 6 weeks help (for players and coaches), I jumped at the chance. I have to say; the results have been fantastic. My team are now playing together, as a team and responding to the individual challenges that we have set. On match days we may not be winning many games, but we are now very competitive, showing significant improvement and many times playing better football than our opposition. The players are much more confident and enthusiastic, their parents are delighted and much more supportive and I am really enjoying coaching again. Thank you Pawel!

I as a qualified coach have been going through some mentoring sessions with Pav. The input and feedback he has provided to me has been extremely valuable and made me think about how I can improve as a coach but also improve the boys within the team I coach. I would fully recommend that other coaches trial Pav's mentoring it will benefit you as well as your own team. Having someone look at you and your coaching may make you feel uneasy but I can say from my experience that it will improve you and make you look at yourself, your team focusing on their strengths and the way you approach your coaching. I would strongly recommend Pav and his coaching services to anyone in the game.
