Maritime Specialist, Lee Stephens who has worked at Whittaker & Co for 3 years has recently qualified for the Football Association of Wales ‘C’ Certificate.
The course is delivered over a period of eight days and it is designed to educate candidates in the technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social requirements of modern football so that they can devise, organise, conduct and evaluate coaching sessions in the development of youth and senior players.
To obtain the certificate, Lee had to deliver practical sessions on course and he was also required to complete logbook tasks and session planners throughout the course for over 16 sessions.
At present Lee is currently a coach for the Newtown Whitestars under 9’s team, below is his team after taking part in a football festival at Caersws, Powys last month.
He is also the Mid & North Powys Development (Academy) Under 9’s Coach and if that isn’t enough he also delivers coaching sessions to a local senior team.
So all in all, he is kept busy both in work and on the pitch
