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.

Trent - 13-04-2023

Today our 7 year old son had the opportunity to have an incredible one on one coaching session with Tom McDonald. Coach Tom was fantastic taking Parker through an AFL warm up and drills session. Coach Tom then worked through technical skills which Parker can take way and practise at home. Parker had a great time in the session and we will continue to meet regularly with Coach Tom to further develop Parker’s skills.
