POSTPONED! Pete Sturgess returning to Jersey

Tim Pryor
FA Foundation Technical Lead to run two on-island events for local coaches

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances these events are going to be postponed until further notice.

We will be working together with Pete and his team to rearrange the events for later in the year and will be in contact as soon as it is confirmed.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.


Club coaches, volunteers and parents in Jersey coaching children aged 5-11 are being invited to two CPD sessions later this month, run by visiting FA Foundation Technical Lead Pete Sturgess.

The events will be based around the Foundation Phase DNA, with Pete Sturgess continuing his roadshow around County FAs up and down the British Isles. This is an exciting opportunity for grassroots coaches to observe the key messages being shared along with the free HIVE LEARNING resource which is jam-packed full of ideas, sessions, articles and videos based around creating the right environment for children aged 5-11.

The first event, on the evening of Friday 26th April 2019 (NOW POSTPONED), will consist of a presentation outlining the key messages for the Foundation Phase DNA ‘Phase 2’. It will be followed on the Saturday morning (NOW POSTPONED) with a practical delivery to a local team at Springfield 3G to demonstrate how the key messages of the Foundation Phase DNA can be delivered within sessions. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
