Brad Woods - pathway to full-time coaching at Trinity

Brad Woods - pathway to full-time coaching at Trinity

Here is an interesting coaching pathway. Ten years ago, Brad Woods fell into coaching, now he is working full-time at Trinity Grammar, one of the most successful athletics sports programs in Australia, and also coaching across other sports and their elite and development programs. In this interview, Brad talks about the challengers of coaching in the short school year. He also tells us about how he remained patient as coach, while an athlete played three other sports, but eventually returned a successful athletics career.
