“I say to anybody thinking of doing this course, it’s 100% worth it."
“The B Licence course put me outside my comfort zone but I learned so much. I’ve learned lots on and off the pitch, especially about setting up sessions and creating new drills to develop players. I find classroom work difficult so the structure of this course really helped me to understand what I needed to do each day. The advice from the mentors was great throughout and I say to anybody thinking of doing this course, it’s 100% worth it.”
