A highly experienced performance coach, with a combination of coaching and management skills, functioning effectively as a coach or performance director across a range of sports and continents over the last 28 years.
I have a verifiable track record of player development from academy level through to world class performer, skilled in coaching and leadership roles.
As a performance director, I have developed and coordinated performance enhancement programs in 2 elite level sports, through the multi faceted integration of sports psychology, nutrition, sports science and the application of sports technology. At the core of my programming, the importance of maintaining connection with the playing squad through coaching and developing meaningful relationships.
As a coach, the focus has always been based on applying a holistic and educational approach to athlete and player learning and development through guided discovery and skill acquisition. The coach athlete relationship has lent heavily on a collective intelligence model whereby both parties truly take ownership of the program and accountability to the goals and training processes.
I have used my skills to enhance the performance of individuals and teams in professional and Olympic sports across multiple sports and countries, including:
England Women’s Rugby 2000-2
Leicester Tigers 2002-4
Cardiff Blues 2004-2013
USA Women’s 7’s and 15’s Rugby 2014-15
