Coaching Beliefs

To coach athletes to be able to get the maximum from their sport that they can possibly achieve and to promote a lifelong love of sport.

Still being nervous every time before any athlete that I coach race small or big!! Seeing the same faces turn up at the next session after a really hard session with the excitement of wanting to train harder.
