CELTA is the best certification by far with our high performance coaching for football. But if you have a very good coach, then it is not so important how the coach is certified.

It is not something that you have to decide as an individual. The coach is very important. The certified coach has some sort of experience that has helped their certification.

Football at its best is a team sport just like a basketball team or an ice hockey team or any team sport in general. I believe in keeping the competition between the players but I don’t feel the same way that a player is the coach.
How do you stay fit?
You have to be strong physically. In football, there is plenty of training
