Coaching Bio

Perth Steel player and Junior State Teams indoor and beach volleyball coach. I have extensive knowledge of both the indoor and beach volleyball games respectively, having played and coached collectively since 2014. Training and coaching at such a high level has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience that I enjoy teaching to others. I will be offering individual and group coaching sessions predominantly within the South Perth area.

I started my coaching career back in 2022. I first began coaching in order to assist athletes in building their skill bases and knowledge around the sport, as I wanted to share my experience as a young athlete with others in a similar position. I thoroughly enjoy working with athletes of all ages and stages and seeing them through their sporting journeys. Currently, I play indoor volleyball for the Perth Steel woman's team and the Rossmoyne State League Team. Previously, I have played in many indoor and beach junior state teams throughout my time. In terms of coaching, this year I have taken on the role of the U16 WA Mens Assistant Coach, U15/U18 State Beach Volleyball Assistant Coach and I have been offered a position as the PSA 1sts coach at Wesley College. Notably, this year I also coached the Division 4 women team at my local WAVL club and the Year 5's at Wesley college as well. I am also an advocate for eating well, sleeping, training routines and recovery and I'm more than happy to discuss these strategies within these sessions too.
