Coaching Bio

I have played over 200 games as a premiership player for the Melbourne Football Club, also known as the Demons. AFL is my passion and I am keen to provide coaching to anyone who is interested in increasing their football ability and fitness levels.

Having been involved in AFL for 13 seasons I believe I have a lot of experience to pass on. I am looking forward to giving you personalised AFL coaching and help to support you to take your footy career to the next level. I believe with my experience I can give elite level coaching for all abilities whether that be junior leagues or progressing to the AFL. Away from football I love cooking, football boots and classic cars. *Currently unavailable for coaching - Please contact PlayBook to be added to my waitlist*
* I'm currently unavailable for coaching, I expect to return on Saturday the 31st of August. Please join my waitlist if you'd like to train together when I return. *

Excellent session. Tom was really professional but very interactive and friendly with the kids and encouraging. Would highly recommend a session with Tom! We will definitely be rebooking again

Tom was very friendly and welcoming to my teenage daughter (and family). Tom helped her with her kicking, marking, and agility training. She learnt how to break away from tackles, and other helpful techniques to increase the quality of her game play. Would love to do another session in the new year.

Tom was great with the kids (4x 9yrs old) really took the time with all of them to teach them at a level that was appropriate to their age. They had so much fun and couldn't stop talking about it for hours after. Quote 'Best Birthday ever!!'

Tom was very friendly and chilled. He provided some good tips on ball drop for improving my kicking. He challenged me to improve my running, citing examples from AFL players. He helped with marking and body positioning under the ball and against an opposition player. Also marking the ball ensuring that you’re holding it tight and taking it forward and away from the defender.

What a fantastic session! Tom knew exactly how to work with a very passionate six year old boy and tailored the session accordingly. Our son had a fantastic time, learnt new skills and we would highly recommend to anyone considering.
