“If you’re not happy when you’re coaching, then why are you doing it?”
Welcome to episode 114 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, the only Primary PE podcast in the world, as we talk ALL things Physical Education.
This week I am joined by Ryan Bromyard. Ryan works for Leicester City football club and delivers the Primary Stars project on behalf of the premier league. He is currently responsible for delivering CPD and ensuring students receive the best possible PE experience in two Leicester based primary schools.
Starting his career as a football coach, Ryan soon found a passion for working with young children and helping them find their enjoyment in playing sport. He was keen to develop his trade and worked incredibly hard to level up his delivery before even entering the primary school setting. I found it incredibly easy to connect with Ryan on many levels as his path has many similarities with my own and I was able to empathise with many of the experiences he has had. Ultimately, Ryan has a clear goal for the students he teaches and is immensely passionate about the job he is doing. It was a real pleasure to chat with him on the show and I’m certain that everybody listening will relate to him and find great value in the stories and ideas shared through our discussion!
