Coaching Bio

Inside midfielder for the Brisbane Lions in the AFL, looking to pass my knowledge onto anyone who wishes to improve their game.

I grew up in Victoria and played my junior AFL with Sandringham Dragons. I was drafted to the AFL in 2010 to the Adelaide F.C and was then traded to the GC Suns in 2016. In 2018, I was picked up by the Brisbane Lions. I have now played over 150 games in my career and I am excited to add to this number and continue to improve my game. I am keen to get started coaching the next generation of athletes, and help them improve their skills and gain confidence.

My daughter absolutely loved her session with Jarryd. Jarryd was patient and shared a wealth of knowledge and skill development drills, while making it fun and competitive. Both my daughters walked away with some new skills and a massive smile. Thanks

Jarryd was great with my son - gave some good tips and had lots of fun. Definitely an experience my son won’t forget. Thanks for your time and support of junior footballers.

Jarryd and Corey Lyons conducted a great session for our whole team. Keeping 12 x 11 year old boys engaged at the best of times is not an easy feat but both coaches did so brilliantly. A great experience.

In my 10 year olds words ‘this was the best day ever!’ Flynn loved his coaching session with Jarryd today and took away some great tips and techniques to improve on his game and share with his football team. Jarryd was kind and genuinely interested in helping Flynn and included his brother Riley. Highly recommend having Jarryd as a coach for anyone who lives and breathes AFL like my 2 kids do. Jarryd, you made a 10 year olds day and has labeled it the best birthday ever! Thanks again.

Highly recommend Jarryd as a coach. Jarryd’s training style is well suited to children. My 8 year old son received a coaching session and described it as one of the best days of his life. Jarryd is wonderful with kids and let my 10 year old also join in. Definitely recommend. Great memories and new skills learnt & memories for life.
