It's true. The beautiful (football) game has taught me a lot, and also unlearned a lot.

I am a passionate football coach, having worked with youth, women and senior football players for 28 years.

Over the years I have collected the following certificates or certificates: Initiator (Uefa C), Instructor B, Uefa B, and Uefa A (following). I also followed talent scout, TVJO 1 & 2, Mentor 1 and Mental Coach. Of course I have followed various further training courses over the years and I still regularly attend further training courses. We also talk about a Heysel diploma that we obtained in the earlier years.

My mission was to help them become strong, resilient and creative through exercise, while inspiring them to love exercise and (football) sports - not to see them as an obligation, but rather as a fun escape to the stressors of life. I was blessed to work with boys and girls of all ages and abilities and train them for the same mission: to become the strongest versions of themselves on and off the football field. The game of football is more than just the execution of a dribble or pass...it also has a positive and strong mindset for life.

Over time I have come to realize that in addition to training football players, I went more towards guiding trainers and clubs. I get excited about helping trainers and clubs to help them with their training and operation. This is why I went more into the advisory and practical side of the football game, more beside and behind the lines than between the lines, being more of a help in improving coaches and the functioning of clubs, both at home and abroad. abroad.

Soccer is my life. However, if there's one thing I've learned, it's not learning that makes you stand still and even go backwards. Learning is one of the points that football trainers should always keep in mind. After all, if the coach gets better, his football players get better too! The clubs also have a major role to play in this.

Football is not an exact science, we can learn from each other and with each other. This is why I have a website www.soccercoach.eu in which I try to provide as much information as possible for trainers and novice trainers.
