In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Scott Drawer, Alan Richardson and Graham Williams from Millfield School. Scott is Director of Sport, Alan is Director of Athletic and Graham is Lead Practitioner & Athletic Development Coach. This episode is another one that is pretty unique, for two reasons. One, that we had three members of staff from the same organisation and two, that the organisation they are from is a private school here in the UK. We went pretty high level in this episode and if you’re involved in adolescent sport or school sport, you will love this one.
