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.

Another great PlayBook session! Our 12yo has walked away with a solid foundation to build on after Jarryd quickly identified and tweaked some key fundamentals to his kicking and maximised the hour session with drills to help consolidate the changes made to technique. Jarryd’s tackling tips have meant I’ve gotta be on guard around the house when my sons around and prepared to receive an AFL level beating. Ha! Jarryd’s all class. We were already fans, bigger fans now!

We could not be more impressed with the experience we had. Our session with Jarryd Lyons was for our 11 year old son and he truly loved every minute of it and picked up some really useful tips for his game. We were so happy with our experience we would do it again throughout the year if it was available. This is such a great gift idea.

Walked away from the session confident with a new kicking technique and set shot approach. Also worked on forward craft. Appreciate Jarryd's advice on nutrition, exercises, footy drills, and other 1 percenters that I can incorporate into my game.

We organised a 1-on-1 session for our 8 y/o son. Jarryd was a true professional who ran a fun & constructive session. Our son absolutely loved it we couldn’t wipe the smile off his face not to mention the skills he picked up and the memories that will last a lifetime.

Jarryd was great. He was there early. This was a birthday gift for my 10 year old son and Angus loved every minute. I didn't hear everything that was going on but Angus was engaged and has already been trying to implement the hints that he got from Jarryd. I would recommend a session with Jarryd to anyone. A one on one session with one of your sporting hero's for $150 is an absolute bargain.
