Fun, Healthy & Inclusive football coaching & sport for young people

Active Hub Login


Ahmad is a UEFA Licensed coach who has been coaching Soccer within Academies and Football Clubs in the past decade. During that time he has coached adults, youngsters, boys and girls at various levels and age groups.

In his personal coaching philosophy a good coach is skilled in planning and setting up goals; prioritizing what to focus on and what to be avoided. Understanding players’ motivation, being organized and composed at all time. That’s how they can gain the respect of players.

Ahmad has a player-centred philosophy and believes their development should come first. They participate in sport to have Fun, Learn and Feel Worthy and it’s the coach’s job to create the environment to prepare them for participation so they can express themselves.
He also believes children should know success is not just defeating others and always being first. It means achieving personal goals and doing better than what they have done before. If they commit to the process, be consistent and work with their whole heart, results will come and winning will take care of itself.

In Active Soccer Academy training, sessions are pre planned and designed suitably for relevant age groups. In practice, players understand what they are expected to do so they can make intelligent decisions and take greater responsibility for their own learning and acting.

The journey of becoming a more complete player begins by building confidence and then learning to maintain it after setbacks.

Henry has really enjoyed the training and the matches, he has really learnt a great deal so many thanks to you Ahmad and your coaches. Richard , 01/04/2014


Can I take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful work your team does with the children.  We love your philosophy, and as a family are converted to football - certainly at this level anyway - because you and your team make it possible to learn new skills, have fun, keep fit, and not feel the sometimes overwhelming pressure to successfully compete that some sports clubs display. Trish 24/05/2014


Thank you very much, Samuel had a fantastic time and is already asking when the new term starts. Enjoy your well deserved holiday. Samantha , 02/08/2014


I would like to say a huge thank you for the course you ran,  Luke had a fabulous time and really gained in confidence.  He loves football and really looked forward to each day with you guys.

Once again, many thanks and I hope he can get involved with other football courses you run in the future. Sarah & Des 06/08/2014

Hi Ahmad,

I just wanted to let you know that Saturday's 9.30am session was fantastic the teacher was so engaged with the children and my son Noah said that he really enjoyed himself and learnt a lot about the rules of football.

I know that some of the other parents felt the same and I wanted to let you know this positive feedback.

Looking forward to next Saturday.

Many Thanks, Marika 20/02/2017


Hi Ahmad,
