Whats do you actually do???  

Everything around UKU Coach Education. This includes booking and administering all of the coaching courses, delivering a fair number of courses and supporting the brilliant group of Coach Educators who work for UKU on a freelance basis. I review and develop our course material and long-term I am developing the coaching pathway. We have some exciting plans in place, so watch this space for news on the pathway and more coaching development opportunities.

I work with different organisations promoting Ultimate coaching in schools and developing ways to offer training to more people who can deliver Ultimate to children and young people. There are also lots of interesting opportunities that arise to meet people working in Sports Coaching and Coach Education and it's great to learn from them and develop better understanding of where we sit within the wider world of Sports Coaching.

Who can I find you playing with currently/Where can I find you at tournaments?

If I'm at tournaments I will most likely be playing, unless it's a university event. I play in the women's division so that's where you'll find me. I am playing more flexibly these days so probably won't be at all events, but if I am there and you want to talk about anything coaching related in person please come and find me. Otherwise contact me via email or phone - always happy to answer questions or talk through ideas.
