What are the benefits of private sports coaching?

PlayBook believe that on field confidence leads to off field confidence. Private sports coaching with PlayBook provides children with a sporting experience that is confidence enriching because they set the goals for the session. It’s a safe space for young players to receive information, try new skills and they have the time and attention to master new aspects of play that they can take back to their school or club environments. It’s also an opportunity to spend time with a mentor who can teach important life skills such as sportsmanship and leadership as well as resilience through a sporting lens.

Steph Wood was incredible. Steph adjusted the session to achieve my daughter’s goals and needs. She was personable and really down to earth. My daughter finished the lesson just beaming and said it was so much fun. She has taken away hints, tactics and strategies to help her improve her game. She wants to rebook to learn more.” – Cianna

Josh Dunkley was amazing. My son had a great session and took away some important tips. In fact, he gave a handball tip to get more distance that even my husband hadn’t heard before. I would recommend a session to anyone (and I have been). He is really personable and seems to enjoy the session as well. He is a great role model for the lions. Booking in a session was really easy. He has his availability online. A session my son will remember forever.” – Kirsten

Matthew Renshaw was an unreal coach. He helped improve my sons batting in 45 minutes. He made it fun and my son took away some great tips to improve his game. Would definitely recommend.” – Tim
