How long has Ross been attending football classes with NLL?

Ross has been attending football classes for around 2 years now.


Where does he attend them?

Ross attends the football classes at Broadwood stadium.


What do you think of the facilities & the quality of coaches?

The facilities are great and the coaching is of a very high standard.


What inspired you into taking up football?

Ross really enjoyed playing football in the garden with his family, we then decided to take it to the next level and find him a local class.


What are your ambitions for the future?

Ross continues to develop and enjoy football with a local football club (Stein's Thistle) and puts his skill development down to the great team at NL Leisure.


Any comments you would like to add?

As a parent we used the NLL football sessions as an opportunity to develop Ross's social skills and identity behaviour around other children as we don't see how this works at school. We gained great confidence in how he dealt with situations and found that the experience enhanced his social skills in a positive manner and helped him with "More than just Football".


That’s all for this month’s instalment – If you’ve been inspired by Ross’s story then you can sign up for our weekly football classes taking place throughout North Lanarkshire.
