PROJECT 8 for 2024 will be the biggest and best yet. We want to help you as a player fulfil your ambitions, goals and improve as a player. Traditionally Project 8 was for younger players, but for the first time we are opening it up to all ages. Since 2018 we have helped well over 150 players, from grass-root through to those now representing England, Wales, Scotland and other outstanding representative honours. Many players struggle to obtain the coaching they need to become technically brilliant, amplify advanced skills and iron out bad habits. This is where we come in, our expertise is unrivalled and such is the amazing results we have had.
Why Project 8?
We go further than your normal 1-2-1 Sessions, with a five session programme, (8 hours of coaching) that is filmed, analysed and with planned sessions to see improvements week in week out. We work with you to plan frequency, timings and at time content too. You may have a particular focus one week, (based on a performance) such as marking, or leading, or you may wish to look at consolidating the basics ahead of a trail and aspects to stand out at an assessment.
Are you a Goalkeeper? we'll have a coach for you too!!
FREE PHC STICK
We have a range of sticks for players to choose from, including the JP50 for budding juniors, the P70 LB and the Extreme LB PX100 that retails at £279.00. You can choose any of the above sticks when you enrol in any of the Project 8 programmes starting in April 2024 (in person) and 2024 online.
