In his own words

STUART

I have been coaching for over 20 years, and bring experience, knowledge and guidance to Team Horizon, particularly within the services for children.  Within Team Horizon, I coach children from Nursery to year 6 across a range of sports. As a more experienced member of the team, I work closely with the younger coaches.

I am passionate about bringing fun into every session as I believe this is key for progressive learning; achieving the key fundamentals of child development. If children (and adults) enjoy something they will learn quicker and be eager to develop their skills. This is a core to my coaching philosophy and my success in helping children learn! 

I graduated from University of Hertfordshire with a BSc degree with Honours in Sport Studies in 2008 and have also attained the following coaching awards;

  • ASA Swimming Teacher Levels 1 and 2
  • FA Football coaching Level 1
  • ECB Cricket Level 1
  • England Athletics Track & Field Level 1

I also teach swimming for a private swim school in Hertford, delivering 1-2-1 and group lessons to children of primary age. I also lead the sport events for Springmead Primary school and am part of the coaching teams at Panshanger FC for U8s and U11s.

In addition to this I have been married to my amazing wife Emma for 11 years and together we have three sports-mad boys who are our world.
