Failing isn’t a failure. It is one of the key messages we aim to instil in our players. Try, fail and try again, it’s become a mantra you will hear repeated to our players.
Historically, a fear of failure has crippled the development of young players when in fact it’s something that should be embraced. We ask our players to 'try'. Move faster, ignore caution, take risks, make your own decisions. We expect them to stumble and fall as they strive to be better. As Matt Syed so eloquently writes in Bounce “Excellence is about stepping outside the comfort zone, training with a spirit of endeavour, and accepting the inevitability of trials and tribulations. Progress is built, in effect, upon the foundations of necessary failure.”
At Pass+Move we ask our players to take risks. We encourage them to want the ball, to effect play, no matter the situation and circumstance. It’s how you recognise a Pass+Move player.
The certainties are this: Our players will concede goals. They will make mistakes. And we as coaches will applaud them for trying; we’ll embrace it. The end result of the game, in the early stages of development especially, doesn’t matter. What matters is the overriding result of what they learn from their failures, from their attempts. Try, fail and try again. With hard work and dedication you can achieve anything in life. That is the Pass+Move way.
My son wanted to play football. He is no Ronaldo but just wanted to be part of a team. After trying others in the area we found Pass and Move. 2yrs later we are so glad to be part of the family and there is no surprise it is the biggest club in Hastings and Rother.
We love pass & move, they have given our son the confidence to progress his football skills. All children of all abilities are included unlike some other clubs. Friendly team of coaches and generally such a great football club.
Pass and Move has been a welcoming, friendly, family club that has improved my child’s development and passion in football.
My sons have played for pass and move for two years now and have done the FFA on a Saturday morning for Four years. They are well organised and the coaches are great, they make it fun whilst learning new skills. The coaches cope well with my 8 year old autistic son and adapt the footballing to his needs. I wouldn’t look else where for my sons!!
Harvey is always buzzing and excited to go to football, whether it is training or matches. The coaches all have their own coaching style and bring something different, but they all have a great rapport with the boys and want to get the best out of them. Pass and Move is a wonderful nurturing fun club full of passionate dedicated coaches. We love watching our son play because he is having fun playing football with his teammates and it is time well spent even on them cold wet windy winter weekend mornings.
