After a morning of drills and skills, the afternoon was time for a tournament. Well done Blue team on a win and congratulations on your medals! Everyone was awarded a certificate and there were also prizes through the day for skills and man of the match, who won a prize too! Prizes included sweets, vouchers for a free training day with Shaun at another Bootcamp and Shaun Harrad Coaching bag.
The day ended with a Q&A session where the children learnt about how Shaun got into football at primary school at lunchtimes with his friends, was scouted and ended up playing a pro career, including 13 England caps, matches for Burton Albion against Man Utd at Pirrelli Stadium and Old Trafford. He also scored against Joe Hart when he was goalkeeping at Shrewsbury Town FC and has scored around 150 goals in his career so far. Most of all, Shaun's advice was enjoy it... football is a great way to keep fit, have fun and make great friends. He is very modest and showed a great example of a professional footballer who has a positive, healthy mindset and who is down to earth and plans his diet, sleep and exercise to optimise health and performance. He was a great role model to help our children to aspire to great things in many ways. Thanks Shaun! Wise words were also offered by coach Daz. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Well done to all those who came and took part, it was a fab day and the children were excellent and were praised for their attitudes and behaviour. Go TEAM SWAN!
