It was at this moment that I knew the system I had been using was a winner and SYSTEM-9 was born.
That same year I tried to fit the same lecture into a 45-minute slot at the LTA conference which seemed to provoke some of the best reviews. At that stage, it was time to prepare this for the world! I decided to name my method SYSTEM-9 due to the 9 steps that are used to create a great mini-player.
As a coach I am known for keeping information simple and being able to teach anything to anyone in two minutes. SYSTEM-9 is no different:
What I’ve noticed about Andy is that he has an impeccable way of taking something that seems complex and make it simple and easy to understand.

I then decided to develop SYSTEM-9 into a two-day course teaching four years of information to coaches for the ages 5-8. We’ve now taught this course in five countries around the world, and after attending, coaches have completely revised their club mini-programme!
I had always been amazed by the lack of understanding by many coaches on how to teach to this age group, and this system gives them a route map, or what, when and how to coach a student at any age. Coaches can now take a player and place them in at a stage and work through SYSTEM-9 to the end.Having tweaked SYSTEM-9 over the last few years it is now is the finished product and a great tool for teaching 4-8 years olds. But it doesn’t stop there! SYSTEM-9 is very useful for teaching beginners of any age including adults! There is no reason you cannot get an adult beginner playing within 6-weeks – it’s tried, tested and works!
SYSTEM-9 courses run regularly all over the UK, but to find out more download the book from Amazon.
