Coach Qualifications  
On the plane home from the 2006 Australian Little Athletics Championships at Canberra

 I originally started track & field coaching to help my children in the 'Little A' athletics. I soon found that coaching can became a consuming passion. 

 

I have been fortunate in that I have been continuously encouraged by parents, athletes, associations and clubs to continue as a coach.

 

The opportunities I have had has allowed me to expand my knowledge and abilities as a coach. This has in turn enabled me to provide a better service to those I coach.  In 2009 the ATFCA  presented me with a Merit Award for services to coaching in Queensland.

 

If you are ever looking for inspirational quotes you can go no further than to borrow a quote from great US NFL coach Vinci Lombardi who said, "Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is".
