Meet The Team
Founder & CEO
I am the CEO of SportZone UK. I have been involved in sport all of my life, as a teenager I signed for Watford FC, a professional Football team. Throughout my time at the club, I gained many skills that I transferred to the workplace. When the contract ended, I decided to pursue a career in professional coaching. SportZone UK was created to allow children access to fun, healthy and educational coaching sessions.
Head of Operations
I am Head of Operations here at SportZone UK. After graduating with a 1st class Sports Studies degree at the University of Hertfordshire, I started at SportZone straight away and have enjoyed every single part of my role! I love being able to educate and communicate with the students when teaching as it enables me to share my passion for sport. I regularly go and watch my football team Arsenal and my favourite all time hero is Thierry Henry.
Head of Coaching
I am the head of coaching at SportZone UK. I have been coaching in schools for 8 years now and have loved every minute of it. I started as an apprentice and worked my way through the ranks through agencies and schools until I met my home SportZone. I’ve been here for 5 years now and the team is fantastic. I love my football and my F1 and my favourite team is Arsenal.
My names Ellen and I have just finished University. I like walking and gardening in my free time. I love sports and my favourite sports are netball and athletics. My favourite thing about coaching is giving people the chance to try sports that they’ve never tried before and watching their skills improve over time!
