My strength and conditioning career started during my internship at the Western Region Academy of Sport (WRAS) in Regional NSW. Through this experience I was the head S&C coach for an academy netball team whilst working through 10 S&C certificates and being mentored by some of the industries top sport scientists and strength and conditioning coaches. This saw me make the move to Perth to complete my Masters in Sports Science under one of the worlds top sport scientists Assoc/Prof. Greg Haff (formerpresident of the National Strength and Conditioning Association [NSCA] – the governing body for strength and conditioning in the world) with my research focusing on reducing injury risk factors and improving performance in young netball players.
The past 6 years have seen me as the head S&C coach for the West Coast Warriors Netball Club, I coordinate the strength and conditioning programs for the state league squad, under 20s squad and the mens state league team. In addition to this, I regularly visit the Warriors Academy team, schools and various netball clubs around the region to speak about strength and conditioning in netball and run strength sessions.
