Our Coaches

The coaches must not only be highly skilled and experienced but live and breathe the values of the Academy…we are here to provide players with an unforgettable experience. We see our coaches as role models to players, inspiring and motivating them to achieve their personal best. At EFA, coaches teach players about self-discipline, owning their performance, resilience in adversity and to be relentless in their desire to achieve their personal goals.

As coaches, we believe the “real skill” of the game is measured by a player’s decision-making capability and for this reason our programmes are structured to encourage and shape players to be dynamic and responsive to their surroundings and to think on their feet!
