Coaching Bio

I am a professional footballer for Essendon in the AFL. I was drafted in the 2022 mid-season rookie draft with pick 3 and made my debut against St Kilda in round 14. In my first year in the league, I played 8 games which included a rising star nomination in round 16.

*I am currently unavailable - send me a message to get added to my waitlist* Prior to being drafted in 2022, I was co-captain for the Western Jets in the Nab League and played for Richmond in the VFL. I am now playing and training along side some of the competition's top players and coaches. I have experience with AFL systems and understand the hard work, dedication and training habits required to reach the AFL. I am passionate about passing on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of aspiring athletes.

We purchased this session for our 8 year old sons birthday & Massimo certainly did not disappoint! Massimo was absolutely brilliant with our son teaching him all facets of the game & having a few skill based games with him! Massimo was even injured from his game the previous day & was clearly struggling but still turned up to this with great enthusiasm & professionalism! I would highly Massimo to other people looking to do a session with him!
