As my time with the Winstars Soccer Academy comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my experience. The last year and a half have been full of lessons, and I wanted to share them – both good and bad.
Each year as spring rolls in there is a welcomed sense of change, a signal of growth. This spring, I am fully embracing that change and growth – certainly as I reflect on my last year.
So much has changed in the last 12 months, and I remember when it all started. A year ago, I decided to step out of my comfort zone. I would travel down to Phoenix and visit Altis for their Apprentice Coach Program (ACP), spending 10 days immersed in a world class learning and training environment.
