DNF Coaching is run by two former professional footballers, David Norton and Mark Draper. During careers spanning 1000 games between them they hope to pass on their knowledge and experience to the many children who participate in DNF sessions.
Both men came through the professional football system from the age of 11 and have seen the many pros and cons of junior football. Teaching in schools and the many football camps offer the two, continued insights into the development of children using football as a vehicle.
DNF Coaching, originally David Norton Football 1996, offer children the opportunity of enjoying the game in a safe and friendly enviroment The emphasis is on building confidence and self esteem as well as making new friends.
Our aims are to encourage young players to learn new skills and playing football with a sense of freedom developing in their own time. Enjoyment is paramount and at the same time having plenty of exercise to keep them fit and healthy. If our kids are still playing into their twenty's then we know we have done a good job.
