On Saturday the 10th of July it was the turn of the youngest juniors at LDS to be privileged with a visit of one of Eastern Regions top coaches, Chris Vine. Chris did not disappoint and as is obvious from the picture he gave them a real work-out. Not only did the youngsters really enjoy it, but the visit was designed to assist the coaching team to enrich their skills in teaching the little ones.
Chris stayed for some time after the junior session was complete to bring the team up to date with the latest thinking in coaching and pass on a veritable feast of ideas for games and activities. Chris has earned a reputation for introducing Mini Squash leagues in Essex and if LDS are to produce a crop of talented squash players the sooner children learn the basics of hand/eye co-ordination and balanced movement the better they will be.
Azam, a recently qualified Level 1 coach, who incidentally was taught by Chris, said, "It was great to have Chris visit the club, he is a very talented guy. Everyone could see that the children enjoyed it, as did the coaches who participated in the session, and as a coach it was great to see new techniques and games introduced that we can pass on to the students."
