This week, Everton FC Academy coach James Olsen conducted a club tour across various EDP clubs. James has extensive knowledge and experience within the sport. After his career as a professional player, he went on to coach at Everton FC Academy as well as become a Director at Jamie Carragher Sports & Learning Academy.
At each club that James visited, he delivered theory and practical training sessions with the coaching staff followed by a training session with the club's teams.
James said he was very grateful to each club for being so involved in making each session productive.
"Firstly I would like to thank John Saunders and Steve Shilling for inviting me to be a part of EDP's Coach Education clinics.
Delivering the clinics this week has gone really well. All of the coaching and club staff members I met were very positive and engaged in the sessions. The feedback that I received after each session was very constructive and pleasing to hear.
I hope that I have given the coaches a good experience and that they can take something away from the sessions.
Once again thanks to EDP and I will look forward to working with you again in the near future."
During James' tour, he visited EDP member clubs Brausa, Cedar Stars and TSF Academy. A big thank you to those clubs for hosting James!
