Coach Payton

When you’re not coaching how do you like to spend your time?

I love spending time with my 3 birds, going to the gym or hanging out with my siblings!

What’s the first job you dreamed of having as a kid?

I used to tell my mum that “when I grow up I want to be a bird!”

If you could be any superhero who would you be?

Definitely Spider-Man! I think it would be super cool to shoot webs and swing from anything I wanted!

Which Sporting Icon did you always impersonate in the backyard?

Cathy Freeman for sure! I would sprint from one side of the backyard to the other and get my brother to time me. I wanted to be just as fast as her!

Why do you enjoy working with children?

I love how creative they are! They always teach me new ways at looking at things, I also love being able to act silly.
