Dan is a former professional golfer and coach turned sport psychologist specialising in two sports: golf and football. In golf he is Lead Psychologist for England Golf. In football he is a leader in the field.He has delivered to more than a dozen league clubs, to the English Football Association, the British Professional Footballers’ Association, the English League Managers Association, the League Football Education, the Scottish FA and the League Football Trust.

He has held contracts at several Premiership clubs and is sought after by managers across Europe. He has spoken at some of the world’s leading football conferences and has appeared on numerous radio and television segments providing expert comment, and was a studio guest on Sky Sports The Footballers’ Football Show in December 2012.

Dan is most well known for his work in helping several players turn around their careers. For example, he helped Carlton Cole go from forgotten reserve team player to England international in just 18 months. He also helped Anthony Stokes go from just 4 goals in a season and a half to 6 goals in a month, 23 goals in a season and a million pound move to Celtic.

His books have achieved global bestsellers, with his first book, Soccer Tough currently the leading selling soccer coaching book in America.

His passion is to de-mystify football psychology for footballers at every level of the game. His workshops are fun, positive, upbeat and help all footballers develop their mindsets no matter their ability.

On a personal point of view, his book Soccer Brain has completely changed my mindset when addressing the players I coach. Any coach in any sport can use his methods. I highly recommend you attend this workshop.

How to develop Speed & Acceleration

Without doubt, one of the greatest concerns among today’s athletes and coaches in all sports is how to improve Speed and Power. The workshop will focus on developing Speed and Acceleration for multi-directional sports, covering the theory, coaching methodology and practical demonstrations.  This 1 day workshop is for both coaches and athletes who want to learn how to develop and coach Speed.

No matter what your starting point you can always get faster!

Speed and quickness are skills that can be taught and not just something you were born with. By using a number of specialised acceleration training techniques and football specific conditioning protocols, which stimulate both the muscular and the nervous system, athletes can improve their speed, agility, acceleration and power. These techniques have been used with academy and professional football teams in the UK and Europe with great success in injury prevention and multidirectional speed development.           

Did you know?

65% of footballers over the age of 13 are slower turning on one side than the other, by up to 0.65 of a second.

Many footballers can improve their speed and quickness just by correcting their running biomechanics.

Reactive Speed can be improved by up to 30% with the correct training in just four weeks.

If youngsters don’t acquire the basic movement skills by the age of 12 then they will very rarely make professional footballers
