I have been coaching for over 10 years, working with male, female and all-abilities football and futsal players. I am also a secondary school teacher where I run the football program as well as teach Economics, Commerce and Humanities. I have worked in coach education for both the federation and at the club level as a coach educator and technical director respectively. I am passionate about sport and am eager to continuously improve football in this country by helping footballers reach their potential as well as improving myself to be a better coach.
My philosophy is based around player-centred learning. Focusing on developing a relationship with the player to then create an environment where they can improve, is important when trying to help a player reach their potential.
My youth football was played in Japan and Australia before I transitioned into coaching. Here are some of the highlights on my coaching journey.
2014-2017: Box Hill United (NPL Mens Assistant, Assistant TD (Miniroos), NPL 12's-18's, Miniroos, SAP Leader)
2017: Football Victoria TIDC (Assistant Coach 2005 born players)
2017-2019: Melbourne City Football Club (U18 Assistant Coach, U16 Development Squad Lead Coach, NPL Junior academy)
2020-present: FC Bulleen Lions (Senior NPLW Assistant Coach)
2013-2020: FV State Futsal Head Coach
A 1-on-1 session is tailored based on the players needs usually in consultation with the player or parent prior to the session.
A team session varies depending on the level of the team. An example of this at the NPL level can found at the following link: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AkCb1PWTTzRPvUlJ3oh9NpujxRsH
