Adam started coaching in 1999 and quickly fell in love with working with children of all ages. Having started his coaching career with Oxford United, he went on to work with Reading and Southampton whilst building his own coaching business in the background. Spending time within these professional environments has given him valuable experience which he enjoys passing on to players and coaches.
Adam set up Adam Bradley Football Coaching in January 2000 and, having built up his qualifications, has built strong relationships with players, parents, schools and clubs all over Oxfordshire.
"I am passionate about football having played the game for over 25 years. To pass on my knowledge to players and coaches is of huge importance to me and I am proud of the high quality sessions I am able to offer.
During the past 5 years, I have been building a unique coaching team; A team that shares my beliefs and passion. I feel we are approachable, friendly and honest with everyone we work with. Our personable approach to the variety of age groups that we coach is second to none and we endeavour to get to know each individual to find out how to get the best out of each player."
