Simon Motyka

Youth development coach

  • Date Joined: 30th August 2016
I was late in starting my coaching journey in England at the age of 33 yrs old, I had worked various full time jobs since i was 16yrs old, I have played football across all different levels, school , grassroots , county, pro youth player, non league football.

I began volunteering at local junior clubs around me, from there I was lucky enough to then progress to work in a professional environment, then at 35yrs of age after volunteering and taking my coaching qualifications and gaining as much coaching experience as i could i was off on my first adventure to coach full time abroad, I took the decision to relocate abroad due to an opportunity to continue my coaching development and experience coaching in a full time environment, in taking this step I’ve been learning and growing as a football coach and have gained valuable full time experience.

I am a very determined, trust worthy person, who is always looking to increase my coaching knowledge and strive to learn new ideas so I can pass this knowledge and experience onto the players, to not only try and help them with their footballing education but also to help the person as well as the player.

As a coach I believe its our responsibility to continue to learn and gather new ideas so we can give the best knowledge and advice to the players we come in contact with.
It’s been a great coaching journey so far working abroad across different countries it’s been filled with different challenges whether that be in the coaching profession itself or personally whilst working abroad alone it can be challenging in different ways but at the same time massively rewarding and I would say it’s definitely been one of best decisions to work overseas.
