OUR COACHING

All our coaches are experienced in engaging young people in creative and challenging sports and dance sessions. PDS adopts a player centered approach to our coaching using learning through games we promote the development of technical ability, tactical skill, ethical participation, teamwork and personal achievement. We specifically design our sessions to meet the ability or non-ability of players and to ensure all participants enjoy and get the most from our courses. We focus on the enjoyment and fun as much as the player development. We believe Sport and Dance is a great vehicle for young people to keep active, learn skills, meet new friends, and be motivated to help in other areas of life, that's why at PDS we engage every young person on our courses.
