Having taught in schools for just over 20 years now, my standards are pretty high… needless to say Activ8 has scored a hat-trick! Dan has a genuine talent in not only coaching youngsters but also developing their confidence, team spirit, building self-esteem and respect in all the young people taking part in his fun packed sessions! These sessions are well organised and meticulously planned to progress and develop each child’s skills, fitness, tactics and game play. All abilities are catered for and each child is made to feel important in their team ethic.

Dan is an excellent role model and has fantastic enthusiasm which is passed on to the youngsters he coaches. My son Fergus has loved his Saturday mornings since he was 6 years old (he will soon be 11). He gains much from the physical exertion and the opportunity to mix with players from a range of ages in a safe and fun environment. Activ8 is everything a football academy should be and more… It is a pleasure to be part of such a welcoming and friendly organisation – Thank you Dan!

I am a parent to James(12) and Matthew(9) .We have been coming to Dan Wilson’s FANTASTIC,FUN AND ENJOYABLE FOOTBALL COACHING  for many years now, in fact James was (6) when we first came to football sessions, and Matthew was not a football orientated child at all. Dan has bought out in Matthew a talent and a belief in himself  that he can enjoy the fun and skills of football in a safe and professional way, and it’s the highlight of both James and Matthew’s week  to come to Activ8 ‘s  football  sessions on a Saturday morning. James has been very influenced by Dan’s football coaching and is making future choices based on Dan’s mentioning skills .

The boys and girls of all abilities really get on well together, and encourage each other to do well during the sessions. The friendly environment that Dan encourages has helped all the children blossom and grow over the time that we have attended. As a parent it is wonderful to see not just my children but other children too enjoy and encourage  each other to give their best and have a great time. WELL DONE DAN.KEEP UP THE TERRIFIC WORK THAT YOU DO. from a very happy parent.
