David Francis

Football Coach
[email protected]

My name is Dave and I am excited to be a part of the HeadStart Football Academy. I have been coaching for 20 years, across both the UK and the US and covering a wide range of ages from as young as 3 through to adult. Most recently I have spent my time focused on the female game, developing my own club in the UK, where we grew from 3 players to 100 in the past 5 years and coaching for Forest Green Rovers as the U10 Girls Head Coach and Women’s 1st Team Assistant Coach. I have recently completed the UEFA B License and also obtained the USC (formerly NCSAA) Advanced National Diploma. Additionally, I have completed some minor Goalkeeping and Technical Skills Certificates and was fortunate enough to have a study visit to the Ajax Amsterdam Academy in 2014. My coaching philosophy is about creating an environment that allows players to learn, to experiment and to enjoy the game. I believe that if players are offered these 3 things then they will develop a life-long love of Football, as well as develop the skills that will transfer into other areas of life.
