Coach Education: Changing the Landscape of Football Development – A Conversation on Coaching

Changing the Landscape of Football Development: A conversation on coaching with Declan Edge and Olé Football Academy.

“An Olé football-bomb has just exploded in my head! What stood out to me the most is how Declan and Ben summarised and simplified the basics of football and football coaching.” – Attendee from Auckland workshop.

Join Olé Football Academy Director of Football Declan Edge, Technical Director Ben Sippola and CEO Blake Jones for a two-part educational workshop on the WAY and WHY we play. Open for coaches and teachers across all codes, levels, ages and abilities. Attendees will learn concepts from the workshop that can be easily implemented into their own football and/or learning environments.

The day will begin with a conversation, where Declan will share his insights on New Zealand’s developmental landscape over the past decade. The team will also speak about ‘The Olé Way’ of training and playing, recognised nation wide for consistently developing age-grade international players and current All Whites.

Following this, Declan and the team will deliver an on the grass, practical coaching session.

“I’m really impressed with how they connected and interacted with the football-minded AND not so football-minded people in the room.”

“I think it’s really important to be sharing the kind of work that you guys are doing if you’re achieving the final results that a lot of people in the game are trying to achieve.” – Attendee from Auckland workshop
