Sports & Kids, Coffee & Chat

Joe is a single dad with two daughters who have somehow managed to balance successful academic lives with sporting success. That has given Joe a lot of experience as a parent working with sports clubs and coaches, something as an ex teacher he’s very interested in. He would be very happy to share his experience over coffee, working with swimming, triathlon, volleyball and gymnastic clubs and coaches, over fifteen years, with any parent trying to juggle their child’s academic and sporting aspirations. London and South West within reason. Includes a signed 1st edition hardback and your name printed in the back of the book.
