Stuart McFadyen

Youth Football Coach

  • Date Joined: 30th August 2016
I’m a 22 year old coach from Scotland. I have just over 3 years coaching experience and I am currently doing my UEFA B licence through the Scottish Football Association. I educate my players how to deal effectively with everything that the game has to throw at them, I do this by focusing on four key factors in all of my training sessions which I believe strongly are vital for footballers, they are - physical, tactical, technical and mental. These are implemented in every one of my coaching sessions. I feel this provides them with a good foundation they need to progress to an elite level.

I currently study football around five or six hours a day. I coach five nights a week which allows me to improve myself and identify what I can do to improve sessions that I coach. Through this, I have created my own personal philosophy which includes the key four elements to coaching: Technical, Tactical, Physical and Psychological.
