OUR STORY

Having worked across 5 countries, developing athletes of all levels across a range of all sports, there was one thing that became clear about the athlete development system here in Australia.

Unless you were already elite, and training at a National Institute or Professional Sporting Club, you were only provided with the bare minimum support to succeed physically.

Athletes were banged up and struggling to play without pain, or simply, not up to scratch physically when it came time to join the elite and open age squads.

This lead to an ever-growing gap between the best and the rest.
Simply..too much talent was falling through the gaps or getting lost to career-ending injuries.

WA Sports Performance was born out of the necessity of change in the system. We decided we would help lead the way in how developing athletes trained, by providing each and every one of them, no matter how big or small the goal, the facility, programs and support that they need, built from over 10+ years of elite level coaching experience.

Our center strives to give everyone the chance to succeed and continually strives to elevate the levels of its coaches and athletes, to establish itself, and be looked at in the same vein as the government-run institutes and professional sporting clubs.
This is truly a space for everyone and every goal

Masters of Sports Science
ASCA Level 2 Strength and Conditioning Coach

Across over 10 years now as a professional S&C Coach, Dan has had the opportunity to work with and support hundreds of athletes, ranging from developing athletes, all the way to leading performance teams for World Cups/Olympic Qualifying events for National Sporting Organizations 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.
