  • Mentoring

What are the main benefits of having a Mentor?

The purpose of a mentor is to connect an individual who has a lot of knowledge and experience with someone who hasn’t gained the same knowledge or experience – yet.


Our player 1-to-1 mentoring programmes can cover the following areas:

The areas that you need to work on. The drills you need to undertake. How the drills will improve your technical development

From a position specific perspective, which areas do you need to work on:

  • Scanning (searching for useful information to inform decisions)
  • Positioning (where you stand, move from and move to).
  • Timing (choosing the moment to act)

Confirm the physical areas that you feel you need to improve:

  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Agility
  • Conditioning

Mental Development
From a mental perspective what areas do you feel you would need advice/support in

  • Motivations
  • Mental Robustness
  • Confidence
  • Effective Communication
  • Wellbeing

My assessment to help players understand exactly what areas they need to focus on can be provided by Performance Profiling
This is a simple but powerful tool to help you find your personal strengths and areas for improvement

  • When we know your strengths we can use them to your advantage
  • When we know your areas for improvement we can work on them to get you better
