STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING IS THE FORCE FOR COACHES CLINIC

Former Sunderland AFC Strength and Conditioning Coach, Scott Pearce is leading a free ‘warm up masterclass’ at next month’s Foundation of Light Coaches’ Clinic.

Taking place at the Beacon of Light on Friday 14th December (5.30-8.30pm), the workshop is open to all coaches regardless of qualification or level.

Entitled ‘Is there more to a warm up than meets the eye?’ the session will be split into theory and practical workshops with special guest, Scott Pearce sharing his knowledge and expertise with attendees.

Former Sunderland AFC first team Strength and Conditioning Coach, Scott has over a decade’s experience of working with footballers such as Everton and England keeper Jordan Pickford and Liverpool and England midfielder Jordan Henderson, helping them reach peak physical condition.

The coaches’ clinic will focus on providing advice and support to coaches wishing to embed strength and conditioning into their training and matchday schedule.

The practical session will see Scott work with the Foundation of Light’s u16 Player Development Squad, but the messages Scott will share on the workshop will be transferable across multiple age groups.

I’m really excited to be leading the next Coaches Clinic at the Beacon of Light and sharing some of what I’ve learnt over the years.  Strength and conditioning is vital in any sport not just football. It will improve performance, reduce risk of injury and build a robust athlete.  It can be difficult for coaches to factor this in given the technical and tactical requirements alongside the competition schedule. Nevertheless, it should be implemented regardless of age or level you’re playing at.

Scott Pearce, Head of Strength and Conditioning at Foundation of Light

Scott has a proven track record of the development of physical fitness in football, ranging from youth football through to the professional game.

After leaving Sunderland’s Academy of Light in 2017 he spent a year working with the Taiwanese national team before taking an opportunity with Foundation of Light, leading on the Strength and Conditioning gym within the Beacon of Light.

Scott adds, “we will soon be offering strength and conditioning sessions for players and squads wishing to take their game to the next level, all from within our own purpose-built gym in the Beacon.

“The Beacon of Light is a fantastic place for people to come to play, learn and improve and I’m proud to be part of it.”

Coaches Clinic is FREE to attend but pre-booking is essential.  To sign up contact jamie.wright@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 563 4727.
