This week on the show, I sat down with my good friend, Dave Wright (@davewright07).

Dave is head of coaching at Birkenhead United FC in Auckland, New Zealand and Co-founder of Player Development Project, a platform offering a massive collection of coach education resources and online courses.

Dave and I often catch up to talk coaching, kids and athlete development, so we thought why not record our conversation and share it with you.

Today, we discuss what it’s like being a dad while working in youth sport, the importance of joy, individualisation within group environments, coach development, and much more.

If you like this format, please let us know and we’ll keep doing it!

And if you’ve got a query and want it discussed, drop it in an email to me here.

Kia ora!
