Enoch Showunmi

Coach

Coach Enoch played over 400 professional games in the English and Scottish professional leagues and also represented the Nigeria full national team. Having been rejected multiple times from youth academies while young and signed pro relatively late, coach Enoch is passionate about boosting players up the levels of the game who may have been overlooked for different reasons.

ABOUT GSP's RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM

About Section
ENOCH PARADISE.jpg

A flaw exists in the current youth coaching model where players will play one style, struggle in college and then the style of play be blamed. This dynamic is even stronger at the professional level. If you truly want to make it to the top of the sport, you must be able to thrive in a range of environments and we will teach this to our players. Any guest coaches will be college or professional level and game opposition will come from these levels to sharpen the game of our players and have them KNOW, not guess what the realities are.

 

All games will be filmed and our players given classroom sessions to teach how to make their highlight reel most effective for their position of play. Individual and team performances will also be evaluated and reviewed post game in a group classroom setting.

 

While some players may struggle in the advanced opposition level games, they will receive connection, mentoring and support from the staff. This is the key to development rather than massaging the environment to make sure they succeed. Written evaluations will be provided to players at the end of each term and discussed with families to guide going forward.

Sport Psychology & Mentoring lessons will be delivered on campus 

 

Tactical education breaking down a game with our players and helping them see and evaluate through a coaches eye. In our experience this has been a very positive factor in increasing a player's in game awareness. We will also attend annually a professional and college game, both for the experience and the educational aspect of the trip.
