Olympic Skeleton Coach giving personalized advice on becoming an Olympic Athlete in Vancouver

Methodology

My methods are based on over a decade of elite coaching and competing where individual needs are prioritized and growth is the focus. I believe every athlete has a different learning preference and it is the job of the coach to identify that and coach within those parameters

Background

I have a Diploma in Human Kinetics and have competed for Team Canada on the International stage and in Major Games events. I have been an elite athletics coach for 7 years and most recently coached Team Australia at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang
