Over the past 25+ plus years I have been an accredited athletics coach.
I have coached at many of the leading private schools in SE QLD, and currently Head Coach of Athletics at Mary MacKillop College, Nundah.
At these schools I have implemented Talent ID programs that identified students for specific events. This led to several athletes from these programs making it to Queensland State and National Championships, including World Junior U20 Championships.
I also offer consultancy work to schools and to implement Talent Identification Programs for Athletics, as well as Speed and Power Development for other sports.
Currently working with Peter Makrides, nationally ranked Skeleton (winter sport) athlete.
Please feel free to contact me for any of your Athletic requirements.
