Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
I love this sport and had always wanted to become a snooker coach. I
wrongly supposed that because I wasn’t of professional standard, I had
little to offer. It was only when a couple of requests landed at my door
regarding potentially coaching beginners that my interest peaked.
Having now fully completed and successfully achieved the WPBSA, 1st 4
Sport, Level 2 Certificate in Snooker Coaching Qualification, I would
encourage anyone with an interest in snooker coaching to take advantage of
the bespoke knowledge and information that this course provides. It is not
only great fun, but includes scope for personal and professional
development long after the course has finished.
Personally, I sought 3 things from the course: Firstly, to give me the
best possible foundation to run a snooker coaching enterprise; Secondly,
to obtain the tools, knowledge and confidence to improve the standard of
anyone that I was coaching; And thirdly to ensure that I was able to
effectively contribute something back to this wonderful sport!
The course delivered on all these fronts and my nascent snooker coaching
career is now successfully up and running. Also, as the course is
recognised by 1st 4 sport, it means that I have the confidence in
knowing that I have received a top notch professional qualification to
I am proud to now be recognised as part of the WPBSA coaching network and
having such an established, well known and respected organisation behind
me can only benefit myself and those who I am lucky enough to coach.
I was officially presented with my Level 2 1st 4 Sport Snooker Certificate in Snooker Coaching, by WPBSA chairman Jason Ferguson, along with the 1997 World Professional Snooker Champion Ken Doherty.
