Level 2 Intermediate Club Coach – Australia

Coaching

I have coached in Australia and The Philippines. Below is a detailed summary of the athletes I have worked with. I apologize to those I may have missed as I have worked with a lot of athletes and occasionally some data goes missing.

I started off coaching Via Email but then transitioned into direct coaching. I still do both.

I primarily coach Privately. But did work two years for a Provincial Sports Academy in the Philippines with Elementary and High School Kids. During that time I focussed on building the sprints program. And had athletes qualify for national high school finals and win regionals. A big turn around was a Regional 100m title in the Boys. Where my 2 athletes went 1-2. The first time in 10 years anyone from that province had won the Regional 100m. The year before I came we were last in the finals. I have coached three athletes so far that have represented the Philippines. 2 in age-grade meets.

I am very orientated on correct movement patterns, teaching progressive movement and corrective drills with video analysis. Strength Training. Plyometrics to activate fast-twitch muscles, and rest and recovery variables.

I primarily coach Sprints, but have also coached Middle Distance, Long Distance, Long Jump, and High Jump and am starting to get into Hurdles coaching.
