Coaches

Western Athletics have a range of experienced coaches available to all athletes who are wanting assistance with their chosen disciplines.  Please take advantage of the supplied email addresses to make initial contact.

All of our coaches who have made their services available to underage athletes have a valid Working With Children certificate and coach primarily at  the Victoria University Sporting Complex in Werribee. 

John Alchin primarily coaches from Parsons Reserve in Sunshine.  The Club does have other athletes who are coached by coaches not listed below as they do not coach at one of these locations.
