Developing the Intelligent Young Footballer by Mike Mair


Categories: ,


It is an absolute privilege and pleasure to have the opportunity to grow and develop, influence and inspire the intelligent young footballer and it is a tremendously exciting and rewarding process.

In reality it can be very challenging and frustrating at times but throughout my journey I have learned many life lessons that I want to share to help you influence and inspire others to grow and develop. Football, the beautiful game has been so good to me, filled with some outstanding memories and experiences…it is my time to give something back.

When talking to a fellow and respected grassroots coach about my intent to write this book and share my story, he said “I wish there had been something like that around when I started.” That was all the inspiration that I needed.

Give yourself the permission to pause to read my story. I hope that it inspires and influences you. Ultimately, enjoy the experience and the privilege of developing the intelligent young footballer.
