First One on One Session with Matt
My 9 year old son had a great first one on one session with Matt. He had so much fun we are going to continue the sessions once a fortnight. Matt work on my sons non preferred foot and hand balling with both hands. His communication with him was great and very positive. The activities he had set up were age appropriate and fun. He has given him some things to work on until our next session which we are looking forward to.
Our son Byron just had his first coaching session with Matt. Byron thoroughly enjoyed the time Matt took with him teaching him new techniques to improve his game. Byron enjoyed the session so much that he was practicing the new taught techniques straight after his session. We look forward to regular coaching sessions with Matt.
What a great guy, Matt was the perfect choice, 2019 during his 4th season of league my son Finn was keen to try AFL, He played 1/2 season with friends, thrown in the deep end with a team short on players, he learnt pretty quickly its a very different game, he also really liked it! The idea was to then find the right coach to build his confidence and skill levels. Matt's very easy going, subtle, yet achieves high in where he's heading with each idea and activity. He started with the basic fundamentals, teaching Finn how important each hand ball, kick, mark, etc is and to keep practising over and over. Finn is tall so he and Matt explored and practised some ruck strategies (not Finns chosen position but always put there) and how to be versatile in the team if required. In 4 sessions he did all of of this and proving to Finn where his strengths are and to focus and believe in them. Finn is a team player, not so motivated without it, but now I've noticed he's patiently using this time while he waits for the season to start. He's recognised how important each handball, kick, drill etc is and his smile says it all, We have recommended Matt to a friend, another young player who's also very happy. We have booked more sessions with Matt, its coming together perfectly!
