NVL MEN - HEAD COACH
I have been involved in Volleyball for over 28-years and it’s so exciting to finally be part of a club with a real passion, desire and hunger for success!
As a coach I have been fortunate enough to have had so many quality players to work with – none more so than right now! I have always immersed myself within the sport and in particular with elite level coaches. This has helped me to develop my own philosophy and style of play, which my players buy into wholeheartedly.
My successes to date include being awarded National Children’s Coach of the Year in 2011, guiding my National League Ladies to the National Shield Final in 2012, and most recently coaching both Men’s and Ladies squads to their respective National League titles in 2016.
My goals and ambitions are high for New Forest Volleyball and I look forward to many years of success for this very unique club!
My role as the clubs Head Coach means that I oversee the training and competitive elements of the club from juniors to seniors, working closely with the club coaches to ensure a consistent and uniform delivery of information, that brings the best out of the players and the coaches.
As the assistant coach for the England Cadet Boys, I get to see the top prospects this country has to offer on a monthly basis. Working to Head Coach Luis Bello I am constantly updating and developing my coaching.
My Experience as an England and Great Britain International over a 12-year period gives me a good library of knowledge to pass on to the players and the coaches. Add in to that, I am in the process of completing my level 3 volleyball coaching award, the highest award in England.
My job as a volleyball commentator, where I sit court-side and watch the best teams in the world play the game, gives me unique access to players and coaches to discuss the game at the highest level, keeping my knowledge up to date and relevant.
