The Bio

Coach ‘Andy’ (as he is affectionately known by many of the kids he teaches in schools and during AJB Camps) has owned AJB Sports In Education since 2015 and has built it up almost single handedly into the exciting and vibrant enterprise we know today. He is passionate and dedicated to coaching and helping young people to grow and realise their potential through sport. Andy highly values the AJB ethos and instils it into every part of both the company and his own personal life. The belief that sport shouldn’t just be played for competitive or extrinsic rewards, but that it can help young people to create, learn, lead, inspire and grow.

Andy caught the ‘bug’ for coaching when he moved to NJ, USA at the age of 22 and stayed there for 8 years. During this time he grew as a coach and progressed to the top of the coaching pyramid in his respective field. It was also in New Jersey that Andy met the love of his life, Marlen San. They have since had a baby together, the adorable Maddie, and relocated back to the UK to settle down and continue their incredible journey together (plus it makes finding babysitters easier with Andy’s family close at hand!)
