Lucas Clayden -:- Pro Elite Academy
I began my coaching pathway when i was 18 years old coaching sports camps in Ireland, then a year later i started coaching for Pro Elite academy where i now enjoy coaching and passing on my knowledge to the players.
During my initial coaching time abroad and here i have also been in university doing my Sports Coaching degree earning a honours degree at 2:2 level. This has helped me to improve myself as a coach and to improve the players that i coach. I also passed my level 1 and 2 to gain good knowledge of how to coach and an understanding of how players learn.
During my playing career i first started when i was 4 years old playing for local clubs. Then later in my career have played for Thackley u17’s. i was also was given the opportunity to train and play with the 1st team at a young age. i have gained good knowledge of the game through this this as well as improving my playing ability which i can then use to pass on to the players at pro elite during sessions.
