In the first of our 'My TCM' series in which we invite people to tell us a bit about how TCM helps them in their coaching roles, we spoke with UK-based Premium subscriber Tom Cunliffe.

He said: "I started off at Little Sports Coaching and have never looked back - I have done this for roughly 13 years now."

Tom currently works for Soccerwise, based in Cheshire, who provide extra-curricular soccer training for lunchtimes, PE lessons, and after-school clubs.

He said: "I heard about The Coaching Manual through word-of-mouth and have been using it for a long time - it's massively helped me improve as a coach. It also definitely helps to communicate our philosophy and it has opened up some ideas and thoughts within our company."

To continue developing throughout the COVID-19 lockdown period, Tom is taking part in The Coaching Manual Certificate Level 1, which he describes as a "great course".

He added: "Without a doubt, I look forward to Monday to see more of the course content and just to see if you got more interviews or training sessions I can do with the kids so I can adapt them."

Thanks, Tom!
