My name is Karl Benest and I will be the coach of the St Peter’s Under 14B team for the upcoming season alongside Rui Marques who will be assisting me.
Last season I assisted with the St Peter’s U15 team and Rui was the assistant coach of the St John’s U14 Team. We are really looking forward to meeting and working with you over the upcoming season to make your child’s participation in this team a positive and successful experience.
Our coaching program will emphasize fun & enjoyment, skill development, and further advance players ability to work cooperatively on and off the pitch. We want the children to learn all the basic skills of football and to become as skillful as they can. To achieve this we will be implementing a style of play where we want confidence on the ball, encouragement if things go wrong as well as ball retention.. We also believe that forming friendships, developing a feeling of belonging and learning to share experiences with others is important to children. We will be sending out a copy of the strength and conditioning plan to each player to enable them to continue to strengthen as an individual whilst off the pitch/out of training.
It is our intention to give all the team members equal opportunity to play during the season.
We look forward to meeting you. However, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me on;
