My 8 yr old son’s had around 8 sessions now, and absolutely loves them. Josh always makes the sessions fun and interesting, and changes it up every week, although he also listens to what my son wants to do. He’s excellent at communicating & demonstrating what he means to the kids.
I really feel like Frankie learns new skills every week, improves his fitness and comes away with things to work on.

Our 5 year old had his first session today and loved it. He struggles with so many things and does not have a great attention span however Josh put him at ease and he took part for the full hour. He can't wait till Friday. Thank you

Josh has a very good method of teaching and coaching to improve my son's game. He always always seems to get the best out of him after every workout. Jay has progressed so much under Josh from his first trial with a club to his achievements to date. He always tries to work around our schedule, can't recommend him enough!
