Ep7 – Stuart Waddington | Grassroots parenting guide
On this episode of The Grassroots Network I sat down with star development UK direct Stuart Waddington. Star development UK is a leadership company to create better organisations and teams, I thought this conversation would be very informative to coaches on how to build and create a good team environment. In this episode we also discussed grassroots parents at length and what we can do better to make football a more enjoyable experience for our children. I really enjoyed talking to Stuart to get a parents perspective, with the nature of his business a lot of the same processes can be applied to grassroots football.

Ep1 – Referees with James Henderson
Ever wonder what goes through a grassroots referee's mind? Well you don’t need to wonder anymore, This episode I’m joined by James Henderson, a local referee.
