I Was Very Impressed With the Interaction With the Children – and I’m a Teacher!
“A big thank you Frankie, Malcolm and Billy for providing an excellent week of coaching. I was extremely impressed by the set up and the way you interacted with the children. It's a pleasure to be a part of what you've set up, I've been teaching 16 years now and I can see and understand how important your connection is with the children. It doesn't matter how far they go, I believe that it's all about them believing in themselves on a daily basis and being proud of themselves.
I was slightly worried that Jac would be a little too shy seeing as he didn't know any of the other children but from day one he always stated that he'd had the best day and that all the children were motivated and wanted to play well. Jac has grown in confidence and there has been a marked improvement in his early morning dialect and enthusiasm for life!!
I have you to thank for this and I'm sure he will remember and look back on the week with high regard and respect for you all. He also thought I was joking when I told him that he'd won the Manchester United shirt signed by Phil Jones. What a great way to end the week!
I realise that some may perceive your programmes as 'expensive', but I think finances isn't that much of a big deal when you realise the quality of care that the children receive. You can spend a great deal of money trying in vain to find stimulating and challenging activities for your children to do, especially during the summer holidays. But this is what I discovered when Jac participated in the 4 day Elite Player Development Programme with yourself, Billy and last but not least Malcolm Cook!
I have to agree with Malcolm on the children's behaviour ( which was superb) but being a teacher myself I know that this is a two way system with yourselves and parents, which is truly inspirational.
Jac's really funny when I ask him how the training goes, he just keeps on saying that he realises now how important awareness is?!!! I asked him to explain but he just said ”Mam, it's awesome and Frankie should be paid millions.” I guess that means he's enjoying ey!
Diolch yn fawr iawn again!"
