Pete Sturgess DNA Roadshow

Pete Sturgess To Return

Cumberland FA Welcome Back Pete Sturgess for Part 2 of the England DNA Foundation Phase

Cumberland FA is delighted to announce a coaching evening with FA Foundation Phase Lead (5-11yrs) Pete Sturgess. The genius behind the England Foundation Phase DNA which is an online resource that is full of ideas, sessions, articles and videos based upon the England DNA and long term player development.

Pete’s impact on coaching is nothing short of inspirational and we would encourage any coach working in grassroots football (regardless of age group) to come along and see Pete work.

This will be Pete’s second trip into the county in 2 seasons to demonstrate Part 2 of the Foundation Phase DNA.

The evening will consist of a presentation outlining further key messages from the DNA followed by a practical session to demonstrate how this works in coaching scenarios. This will then be followed by a Q & A session with Pete.

Prior to the evening if you haven’t already we strongly encourage coaches to join the FA Hive Learning platform, which is proving to be a valuable learning tool where coaches can learn more around the England DNA, alongside a number of coaching demonstrations and tips for them to use within their grassroots clubs.

There are age-specific sections which will be a real benefit to all coaches, but especially those entrusted with the football development of our youngest players.

James Reid, Football Development Officer, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for grassroots coaches to observe a masterclass in coaching from Pete. Being fortunate enough to observe Pete’s work on a number of occasions it is one date for any coach I would recommend not missing out of the diary. The way Pete works with the players, his rationale and reasoning behind the foundation phase DNA, and his understanding of long term player development will ensure that you will leave with loads of ideas to take part to your clubs and teams for the players benefit.
