Testimonials

A few words from my trip to Bermuda in August 2009 where I was invited to run my 3 Spring Coaching 2 hour netball workshops with the teachers, caoches and players as well as some 2 hour sessions with their U16 and Senior National Squads.

Read what others have to say about Spring Coaching…

Alex took the time to coach our Club’s pre-season training session – and wow, what a success & what a fantastic start to the season! Alex was full of enthusiasm, motivation and energy and it was immediately clear that she had a real love for the game and for teaching. The girls thrived on Alex’s session and learnt so much in just one hour. Since then myself and one of the other girls have been on one of Alex’s coaching courses that too was excellent – really professional, and a serious confidence booster for us – looking forward to the next session already!!

Ali Masters, Weybridge Vandals Netball Club

Through attending the level 1 coaching course, i feel so much more confident in my own coaching ability. Alex gave me some brilliant points, not only for coaching but also for improving my own game. The book is also very worth while as it includes loads of useful drills for practices.

Emma Bass, St Mary’s College

I attended Alex Spring’s Shooting Skills Workshop recently and learnt so much. I came away truly inspired and with a wealth of information. The course was well delivered by Alex who is an inspiring Coach. Alex is full of encouragement.

Sherma Brown, Raiders Netball Club

I started coaching primary school netball over 12 years ago and although I have introduced many children to our great game, it was only recently that I attended a Level One coaching course, run for Surrey by Alex Spring. Alex is an excellent motivator with a genuine love for the game. The course was both challenging and fun. I cannot praise her skills highly enough and we are extremely lucky to have her in our sport.

Sheila Underwood, Holly Lodge Primary School

After attending Alex’s level 1 Coaching Course, I have started coaching a year 6 Netball team which includes 3 boys. Through the skills I learnt on the course together with the book ‘Coaching Made Easy’ written by Alex, I have become a lot more confident and I now believe in myself as a coach. The book is brilliant- it gives so many different drills and ideas to incorporate into a session, with explanations on how to do them. I definitely would attend another course Alex was teaching.

Marsha Joseph, Year 6 Coach

Alex Webb came out to Bermuda to run some fantastic courses for our coaches as well as taking my U16 National Squad for some sessions. it was great to be part of the workshops so I could feel what i was asking my players to do.

Anthony – U16 National Bermuda Coach

All Alex’s workshops are great for ideas and practices and great to see things approached in a different way. I always take what I want from the drills and blend them to other drills either progress them or regress them. The information is all there and is always very good. The Just Drills workshop was moving on from Alex’s original Skills and Drills workshop and it certainly stepped up a level. It included ‘new’ coaching points and methods which I found really useful.  I have been coaching for many years (first coaching exam was in 1984) and there are always things to learn/update and I find Alex’s courses do just that. Alex does extremely well in producing workshops that so many different standard of ‘coaches’ can all go on together.’

Chris Gregory, Walton and Hersham Netball Club

I found the ‘Just Drills’ workshop incredibly useful. As a trainee PE teacher, I have my own knowledge of netball drills however was not sure or confident enough to select some to use for KS3 and KS4 lessons. I found that the whole session was very informative and easy to understand. Alex was very keen to check understanding and revised a couple of drills following feedback which worked well.  I will definately be attending more courses as the information is not only useful for netball but also other sports after small adpaptions. I would highly recommend this course.

Amy Long – Rydens School. Walton on Thames

Thanks again for such a good workshop. I have been coaching for many years now and try to ensure that every year I attend a number of coaching workshops so that I continue learning myself and keep pace with best practice. I always thoroughly enjoy your workshops and come away with something new. Your delivery is clear and the content well informed and put together, and always fun!

I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Linda Sewell – Pleiades Netball Club and Weybridge Vandals

I cannot recommend Alex’s workshops enough. If you want to know some tricks of the trade straight from the England netball team, then don’t hesitate to go along. I play in a low division and  went on this course just to increase my skills and knowledge. Alex was inspiring, patient and demonstrated for all levels and ability in netball. I can’t wait to get on the court!”
