With over 12 years now as a professional S&C Coach, Dan has had the opportunity to work with and support hundreds of athletes, ranging from youth, all the way to leading performance teams for international events abroad.
He has worked across a range of sports and organisations such as:
WACA / Shanghai Institute of Sport / Indonesian Olympic Committee / Indian National Hockey / Pakistan National Hockey / Perth Wildcats / East Fremantle Football Club
Upon returning from working in India, he decided that the development system for athletes in Australia needed help.
Second tier athletes and athletes battling to return to sport from injury, were simply not looked after the same way as the pro athletes. From this WA Sports Performance was born back in late 2017, with the vision to provide up and comers and banged up athletes, the same opportunities to reach their athlete peak as the pros.
