Mike spent two years in the state of Florida assisting the Harmony High School girl's Varsity football team and began to develop his identity as a coach. "In terms of development physically and mentally, sports provide children with tools that carry over into life as an adult. I believe in the importance of not only being involved in physical activities at a young age, but the lessons and values taught through sport. At the Prague English Football School, children are not only enjoying playing games, they're making friends and growing into great kids and that's something I'm excited to be a part of."

“PEFS is a great way to bring children together from all over the world, to learn, develop and have fun! It’s also a great pleasure to see parents come along and be involved too!”
Learning should be a positive and enjoyable experience for all involved.
Children are active and sociable and learn naturally through movement, play and interactions with each other. The development of sport and motor skills should reflect and promote this.
