Bio

John Herdman

John Herdman... speaks English... sports family (soccer son Jay, soccer brother Martin, boxing grandfather)... favourites have included Newcastle United FC... earned his FA Coaching Certificate in 1995... earned his UEFA B Coaching Licence in 1999... earned his UEFA A Diploma (Coaching Award)... granted (via equivalency) his Canada Soccer Coaching A Licence in 2012...

wrote Jason deVos in 2017, “John’s support for the principles of long-term player development, including the use of age and stage appropriate training activities and game formats, highlights that the pathway to elite levels in soccer begins with the grassroots... his approach supports the principle that focusing on teaching young players the fundamentals of the game at the grassroots level gives them the best opportunity to reach elite levels of the sport”...

said Rhian Wilkinson in 2017, “John has affected all of us in huge ways and only a tiny piece of that is soccer related. It sounds ridiculous but he’s changed me probably as a person and I only met him when I was 29”... said Diana Matheson in 2017, “his results speak volumes, but on John's teams it's not just about the final result, it's about how you choose to get there. It matters what style of football we play, it matters who we did it with, and it matters that we are good Canadians to those that look up to us. He may be a Geordie born and raised, but he knows what it is to a great Canadian”... said Herdman in 2018, “along with Canada Soccer and the rest of the crew, we built that Women’s National Team Program back up from scratch; we built the high-performance system, we built the talent-development system, and we brought the right people in”...
