Simon Harrison

Academy Coach

  • Date Joined: 10th July 2021
I am a coach / performance analyst with a philosophy that believes that development of the person is equally as important as the development of the player, in order to achieve self-actualisation. My philosophy has developed through education and experiences and guides the approach I take to coaching / performance analysis.

I have experience of working in both the grass roots game and within elite environments and have worked with various age groups from U8-Senior. I have also coached in the adult female game. These experiences have enabled me to work as part of multi-disciplinary teams to ensure optimised learning and well-being for the players.

I am now looking for an opportunity to implement my knowledge and experiences and to further develop as a coach.
I am proud of my strong work ethic, professionalism and commitment to continuous self-improvement, and I firmly believe I would be an asset to any potential employer.
