The Bio

I’ve grown up from a very sporty background and found a huge passion for football but still enjoy playing/ learning other sports as well. Being at university has opened up my eyes as to how much the coaching world has a huge and positive impact on all individuals in different ways.

Since being there I’ve developed a huge interest in disability and inclusive sports, having had some fantastic opportunities to be involved in specific events such as Cerebral Palsy football, blind football and meeting a blind lioness player that I’ve been fortunate to do some work with, as well as many other rewarding experiences.

These have given me further knowledge to develop my confidence in coaching/ teaching inclusive sports. I love the feeling of helping people and providing everyone with equal opportunities.

We first met Ruby, once again through our relationship with the University of Worcesters placement. After planning her placement with us way ahead of time we realised we had met one of the most organised and professional students at her age. For someone so young she has a very responsible head on her shoulders and this will certainly take her far.

Ruby will be working in our Wraparound care programs assisting other staff members as well as helping out at our holiday camps where she has been doing her work placement already.

Ruby’s coaching and education career is just getting started, however we think she will go very far – watch this space!
