The Beginners/Intermediate/Confidence in Coaching session is ideal for players who have some experience and want to increase their knowledge/skills and you will be welcomed by a great group of women!  The sessions are always coached in a fun, non-judgemental, enjoyable environment and everyone is welcome.  This is a session with a difference though….

Confidence in Coaching – We want to make sure that females who are new to coaching, are able to put into practice what they’ve learned and deliver a session plan without worrying if anything goes wrong or whether they are going to feel nervous.  This session is the ideal opportunity, if you want to build up your confidence.  Anyone is welcome to join us and deliver a session, just get in touch via  You’d be very welcome and our women who come will be beginners/intermediate level so they will love what you can bring!
