"AS A CHILD I LOOKED UP TO DAVID BECKHAM AS A PERSON WHO INSPIRED ME"

Lee Mounty

 

MY STORY: Lee Mounty

I have worked in the sports & leisure industry for over 13 years. I started as a child’s birthday party host and lifeguarding before spending my last 7-8 years as a sports coach. Most of my work has been in the Wiltshire area, though I also coached in Essex for a handful of months. I moved to Bristol at the start of '17 and am enjoying my new home and job here. I have always worked with children & young adults and there is nothing more rewarding than watching someone grow and develop in sports or in themselves.

 

SPORTING HERO: David Beckham

As a captain for the England team he was an excellent sportsman and role model, he was never in the papers for poor behaviour or foul play. The focus was and always has been on his rather special football skills and his significance as an ambassador for the different charities he supports. As a child he was someone I always looked up to and admired. Even now he still uses his position and status to help others and make a difference which is really admirable.

QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE:

Paediatric First Aid
Child Protection
Level 1 Football
Lots of other Sports workshops

 

GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BETTER:

I support Saints (Southampton)

I have broken my right arm 3 times (ouch) and have a tongue as long as a lizard's (haha)

MY HIGHLIGHTS: Lee Mounty

I've only been here for just under a month but watching 1 of the kids I coach at AirHop was pretty cool as they are ridiculously good on a trampoline (so flipping good - haha)
