Foundation Phase

Weston super Mare AFC Foundation Phase

Matt Bazell is the lead coach for the Foundation Phase. Since graduating from Loughborough College with a degree in leisure management and sport science, Matt has gained seven years experience coaching with children in the Foundation Phase age range. After going to several clubs and watching the standard of coaching, Matt thought that he could do a better job than what was currently on offer, therefore he co-formed Foundations in Football which has been running for five years. Matt has completed the first two FA Youth Modules and hopes to pass the third by the end of the season. Matt hasn’t quite hung up his playing boots yet, he currently represents the Weston super Mare veterans team in their inaugural season.



I am a huge advocate of creating the right environment in which children can learn. Learning in a safe, fun, and most importantly happy atmosphere, I’m a big believer in giving children confidence. Success breeds confidence and confidence breeds success!
