Portsmouth FC Manager, Paul Hart, has teamed-up with former terrace favourites, Peter Beagrie, Kerry Dixon, and Teddy Sheringham to launch an exciting new football coaching scheme, www.ambitionfootball.com
AmbitionFootball.com is an innovative, interactive online resource aimed at coaches and helpers within the grassroots of our national sport. The site brings all the advice, information and tips available at the top professional clubs to everyone involved in grassroots football. The site will give members unprecedented access to the cream of Britain’s football coaches and will help them develop their players using the very latest techniques and methods available. In addition to top coaches, Ambition Football has signed-up a nutritionist, a sports psychologist, a fitness expert and a physiotherapist to provide help and guidance to the members. Each member of the AmbitionFootball.com team will act as a mentor to the subscribers. Paul Hart is understandably excited about the new venture: “Every day I see what a huge difference good coaching can make to young players. I’m really looking forward to sharing my experiences with Ambition Football subscribers and helping to improve the standards of coaching in Britain.
My Progressive Coaching Syllabus will bring Premier League standards to grassroots clubs.” He continued: “We’ve selected some of the best people in football to help our members develop as coaches and give the best knowledge to the players of the future. Our members have access to all our experts so they can tap-in to their wealth of football knowledge – it’s like having your own personal backroom team.” Peter Beagrie played in all four divisions in England and will always be remembered by his trademark acrobatic, double-somersault goal celebration. Currently working as a TV pundit, he can’t wait to get started with Ambition Football “I was fortunate to make over 750 appearances during my playing career and now I see dozens of games a month with my work with Sky Sports. This has made me only too aware of how a good coach can nurture raw talent and help a player not only reach their potential, but in many cases far exceed it. Ambition Football will be an invaluable tool for coaches at all levels.” Members of the site will have access to simple, downloadable coaching plans, each focusing on different key aspects of the game. These session plans will be released each week and will cover all areas of player development. All coaches need to do to give their players fresh, effective training sessions from warm-up to warm-down is to print off each plan and take to the field.
The site also features a community section where Ambition Football members can share information and photos, along with hints and tips to help them develop either their own or their team’s performance. Other famous names involved in the project include Ian Woan, Alan Thompson, Dean Windlass and Andy Townsend.
