A note from company founder, Jack Heald.

My name is Jack Heald and I’d like to welcome you to J.Heald Coaching!

I am a highly qualified coach with over twelve years experience and, since founding my elite coaching company six years ago, I have helped dozens of different organisations to improve the delivery of sport – with some spectacular results. These results have shown themselves not just on the scoreboard, but also in the equally important areas of participation, skill and overall enjoyment.

As the father of two young boys, I’m passionate about encouraging children to love sport and, as such, learn the many invaluable disciplines it brings with it; respect, teamwork, hard work and determination. The alarming rise in inactivity and obesity amongst the very young has prompted me to focus on instilling a passion for sport into children at the earliest age; a love that will set them up for a healthy, happy life ahead.

I’m incredibly excited about what we can achieve together!

1-2-1 sessions

We offer sessions which are run on a one-on-one basis with a player. These are sessions for players who are perhaps not getting the time to develop with their club or school coach. Sessions are tailored to the players specific needs.

Team Sessions

These are run on your team’s training mornings or evenings. We have coaches who come to you to work specially on your team’s worries and weaknesses. This works best when the whole squad is present over a number of days. Sessions are run from the club or school.

Coaching Clinics

These generally take place over the holiday period. What we look to do is get a whole squad down to these clinics and have the squad to work with over a number of days. There is no question that this speeds up their development as a team - having a good number of hours with them over several days is priceless. Every player will go away from the clinic with a Personal Development Plan on what they need to do as a player to develop, both from an individual and a team perspective. Before the start of the clinic we also like to have a video of the team playing in a fixture, to enable us to make sure that we know which areas to work on. By forming a close knit relationship with the Head Coach of the age group we plan sessions to suit the needs of the team, using h evidence we have observed on video footage of the team playing.

Coach the Coach

These are evenings where we come into a club, and through video and practical sessions we deliver a session to suit the club’s needs. These sessions are run to suit your club / coach’s requirements.
Be it breakdown or set piece, you let us know what you need us to do!
