To have a coach like Tarkyn able to conduct one on one sessions is invaluable for the serious footballer. A wealth of knowledge and experience as well as an excellent communicator has seen exponential development in our so.
Professional, Knowledgeable and Approachable - Brilliant!
Due to the impact of the COVID restricted playing season, I booked 3 sessions for my 15 year old son. We have been nothing but impressed from our very first contact. Tarkyn's ability to communicate his extensive knowledge and experience to our son, Jett has been exemplary. The sessions have been well structured with clear goals, and always start and finish on time. Feedback and progression occurs throughout the entire session and has even included a written skills appraisal. We saw improvements in Jett's skills and enthusiasm immediately. The sessions have exceeded our expectation. We were reluctant to book such a high profile coach and player, uncertain if it was the right choice at this point of Jett's development. Tarkyn has been perfect. His ability to work out strengths and weakness and how to get the best from Jett is unquestionable. Our family are grateful for having had the opportunity to work with a coach of this level.
Tarkyn was terrific with Ethan. His instruction, advice and follow up was first class.
