"Thank you very much to Glasgow Sport and VIP for allowing me this excellent opportunity. I believe that this system should be rolled out to every youth coach in Scotland. I intend to take this learning further and try and access the advanced Diploma next Year and I also intend delivering this in the south Glasgow area to as many kids as I can reach on a voluntary basis.”
George Morrison - VIP Graduate
