Thanks Sam for a great session. Plenty of tips, learnt loads, feeling enthused for our next session. Guardian input. You are loaded with skills and can tell you are going to have a positive influence on gameplay from now on.

I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Sam and got a lot out of it. He has a good eye for detail and is very friendly and patient. He taught me some new moves that I could add immediately to my game, and challenged me with some other drills that were around the end-range of my abilities that we can continue to work on. Looking forward to booking another session.

Sam made the private coaching experience a great one. The boys have come away with significant improvement in their offensive and shooting skills and the understanding of the importance of what they learned. Sam made the whole process easy, was very professional and created good rapport quickly. Highly recommended.
