My name is Oliver but I go by the nickname Ollie most of the time, I currently am living in the South of Wales, outside of Cardiff due to my university studies, which is a degree in Football Coaching and Performance. My family home is back in Sussex, just outside of Brighton, but I am originally from Wimbledon, where I grew up for 5 years before moving to Malaga, Spain for 9 years and then back to England at the age of 14.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: During my free time, my favorite sport to play is football. I have always had a huge passion for the sport and have always enjoyed playing it, whether it be a serious league game or a friendly kick about with mates. More recently I have also discovered a huge interest in coaching it in my free time as well and helping others to improve their skills.
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: My proudest achievement to date is being ranked 20th by the Padel Federation of Andalusia, a sport that is played in Spain and South America. My ranking was out of 250 children in my age group, and I had only been playing competitively for 2 years, as one of the only English players on the tour
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: I am most looking forward to many things, such as furthering my coaching experience in a new environment, meeting new people and having to adjust to a 'new way of life' in the camp. Most of all I am looking forward to providing a safe and fun experience for the campers who play football, but to also make sure that they learn about the sport during their time, and not only help improve their football skills but also their social skills outside of football.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I'm excited to build on what is already one of the largest and most popular parts of the camp which is the football department, and to make my own mark on it in order to make sure that the campers have some of the most fun that they will have all summer and to create an environment for them where they cannot wait to come back and do the same
