My Learning Space

So many coaches talk about the “right way” to introduce kids to the game. I think that we should let the kids introduce themselves (Mark O Sullivan, 2015)

This blog is my learning space. In this post I want to  shine a light on some of those who have inspired me on my learning journey. If you click on their names you will be directed to their twitter account. I would advise you to follow them.

  1. Well done Mark! 100,000! You have created a learning space for me and others in your Blog, The Coaching Diary and Twiiter writings that has helped me tremendously in critically thinking/learning about my approach to coaching and parenting. That said, there will be many young children’s lives who will be positively affected by your work for years to come. All the Best, Dave Darcy
