I love the sport of triathlon and have been involved in coaching and specifically coaching juniors for almost the last ten years.
Why do I coach junior triathlon? It is great fun, I enjoy the banter (juniors never let you make a mistake) and it is exciting having a role in a young person's development. Young athletes bring their own new ideas and innovations to the sport all the time as they are not restricted by norms and traditions, I try to do the same.
I was fortunate enough to have a great support from my family, teachers and coaches through my sporting life and want to continue that support on.
I am a Level 1 Tri NZ accredited coach and have been involved in triathlon and middle distance running for as long as I can remember. I coach around twenty athletes from juniors to ironman to age groupers across triathlon, swim, bike and run.
The Black Sands Wednesday swim squad is one of my regular sessions and seen many athletes make huge gains in their swimming.
As an athlete I have competed across all distances, represented both NZ and GB at age group level.
