LUCY HART - Head of Pro:Direct Academy Teesside

Lucy experienced soccer coaching in the USA, becoming Camp Director at Chellenger Sports in Colorado from 2010-2012. She worked alongside local non-profit grass roots football clubs with 'Female football Factory', something she still works on. In 2013 she became Head Coach of FindYourFeet Football & KiddyKickz Football developing children 18 months to 6 years. She had launched her start-up company LC Sports Coaching that same year, offering football coaching to boys & girls aged 2-13, both within an educational setting and privately through clubs, leisure centres & council based centres. Specialising in infant coaching (2-6years) and in female sport.

Her success came to the attention of Pro:Direct Academy in 2017 when she opened and became Head of PDA Teesside. Lucy and her team work tirelessly to give her young players the best experiences from being mascots for Newcastle United Women, to being flag bearers at Middlesbrough FC, to days out team building at climbing centres.
