About the event
- Players grow the 3rd skill required for all-round excellence.
When the 3rd skill - the ability to manipulate space - is added to high technical and athletic skills we get all-round excellence. We get teams like Manchester City. Athletes like Roger Federer, Lionel Messi, Stephen Curry create something out of the space between teammates and their opponents - when their technical and athletic skills are not enough. We get to have a bit of fun :)
The 3rd skill is the ability to hold a 3rd person view (birds' eye view) in the mind's eye. A big picture of how all objects in that space are moving relative to each other. To make a micro decision and then hesitate - often just for a milli second - and use the 3rd person mind's eye to see what impact the micro decision had on space and adjust the next micro decision accordingly. And so on in a dance of space between each other. We achieve something others and often ourselves - can't yet see.
There is but.
When we spend a large amount of time controlling objects around us - we start to see only objects - doing or not doing as we want. We think we must focus on the objects. We become blind to the idea of expanding our view to see the space between objects. We can’t get the 3rd person - birds' eye - view. We can’t have the 3rd skill required for all-round excellence. Games Coaching is about helping players to play to develop the 3rd skill away from any pressure to control objects.

- It's a shrunken court. About 5 meters shorter. This makes it more about manipulating space and less about athletic ability. Less running. perfect if you have not played for a while.

Lets play ball
We are a social enterprise. We use all profits to give those who are excluded or vulnerable to social exclusion a free experience of playing sports and games where everyone set's each other up to succeed. Where everyone constantly imagines other ways. Where everyone uses mistakes to find what is next and grow. Experiences to build a belief that they are not stuck as they are now. Thank you.
