Get to Know the Coach
Get to know the coach is back! We feel that it is important for parents to know a little bit about the coaches that the children come in contact with.
This week, our focus is on our very own Liverpudlian, Eamon Buhalfaia!
Your Name: Eamon Buhalfaia

Where are you from? Wirral (Merseyside)
Area Manager: Liverpool

Why did you become a sports coach? Because I’ve always had lots of energy, I thought I would do something to channel that energy. I also enjoy participating and coaching a variety of sports. Most importantly I am passionate about shaping children’s experiences in sport and PE through fun and learning.

What do you do in your spare time? Play football, running, cooking, spending time with family and friends. I am also an ambassador for a children’s charity called ‘Amy and Friends’.
Finally, why should parents use LSC? As I believe the staff at LSC are exceptional and extremely passionate about working with children. They all have a great attitude, sense of humour and vast experience in PE and Sport.
