Is an interesting course, is short, but touches all the point, and it seems to a good first step to learn how to coach

The lectures have been revealing on many external activities that affect a players performance which are usually taken for granted like diets and timing of meals

Very beautiful lecture and insightful content. But I was expecting to see more information on tactics and play transition. Also on the different roles of players in the Field. But overall good

The course was good, covers more elements then most courses do for a beginner. As a professional sports coach myself, the course told me things I had to figure out for myself through experience. All in all a very good introduction course for anyone who would like to get in the world of professional sports coaching.
