New Intern Profiles
Harri originates from Maidstone, Kent and wants to take a particular focus on youth S&C implementation. His plans for the future include developing coaching philosophy around fundamental movement development and injury prevention, with a view to work as an S&C coach in an academy or school setting.
Coming to Guildford from his hometown of Basingstoke Simon is interested in many areas of his internship from player/team work to testing and monitoring. He is keen to use his time at SSP to gain more experience working with top athletes individually as well as teams in different sports, alongside completing his UKSCA accreditation. Following his internship Simon is keen to work with the English Institute of Sport, the National Tennis Centre or with a professional sports team.

He will be co-leading the Surrey Storm Netball S&C programme, contributing to research around sprint biomechanics/quantifying strength training volume-load and intensity, while helping to support the University’s sports scholarship athletes. Simon would ideally like to pursue a full time S&C career in a HE sports performance environment while exploring opportunities for lecturing in strength and conditioning, sport science or sports coaching.
