By engaging them in an inclusive and entertaining environment of fun learning and enjoyment. This will foster kids’ abilities to love sport and continue playing throughout their lives.

Which Sporting Icon did you always impersonate in the backyard and why?
Don Bradman – loved playing backyard cricket when I was younger, and it was a fun name to say every time I hit a 6 over the fence.

Why do you enjoy working with children?
The young coaches I worked with when I was younger really helped me achieve my goals. I want to have the same effect on kids to create positive experiences for them to take with them into the future. It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces and the fun they are having as it gives you the same positive experiences.
