Alan Keane is the Irish man carving out his own coaching path on foreign soil since leaving his home town of Tralee, and found himself coaching his way through UK basketball, from professional level in Reading, to working his way up to coaching England and Great Britain under 16, under 18 and under 20’s to European championships competing in the top A division and winning a silver medal in 2017.

Alan is also co-founder of a company called MVMT Movement Sports, which is a mission-driven business for difference-maker coaches by providing training for organisations who use sport to create social impact.

He has also coached England in the Common Wealth Games, he’s a qualified school teacher and is currently completing his PhD.

(2.15) – Kerry connections.

(5.35) – What is self-regulated learning.

(12.45) – How has coaching changed in the last 15 years.

(32.45) – The use of questioning as a coaching tool.

(46.00) – Reflective practice.

Similar to season 1, I've set up this podcast with a dual purpose in mind, firstly to provide some thoughtful debate for coaches, but I've also linked up with Recovery Haven in Tralee, who provide free cancer support services for the people of Kerry and beyond.

If you found some value in the podcast, it would be great if you could donate any amount, no matter how small to Recovery Haven through the link here: https://bit.ly/3tfsxWw
