Coach Profile – Andae Kalemusic

Coach Profile – Andae Kalemusic

Five years ago when endurance coach Andae Kalemusic moved from the Blue Mountains, it was a loss for the area of a talented and passionate coach. But it was not long before she re-emerged coaching on the South Coast and suddenly it was obvious there was something happening in coaching on the NSW South Coast with more athletes appearing at state and national titles. In less than two years Kalemusic has already seen tremendous success with Jaylah Hancock-Cameron placing an outstanding fourth at the national championships in December. There will be many more achievements for Kalemusic’s athletes, but she brings so much more to the area than quality coaching. She generates a great environment for athletes to achieve their best, whatever that is, and friendship and comradery amongst the squad in a positive atmosphere. The NSW South Coast is indeed fortunate to have Andae Kalemusic coaching in its midst.

In this interview we learn more about Kalemusic, her coaching philosophy and mentors. About her own career as an athlete and her coaching highlights to date.

14 August 2016 – a red-letter day for coach Jimbo

14 August 2016 – a red-letter day for coach Jimbo

It is unlikely Sydney-coach, James Fitzgerald will ever forget 14 August 2016 in a hurry. Guiding one athlete to the Olympics is an achievement, but coaching two, competing on the same day and both being very competition – that goes down as a day to remember.

Sprinters and hurdlers flourish under coach Mick Zisti

Have you noticed the tremendous number of sprinters and hurdlers emerging from the Cherrybrook athletics club in the last couple of years?

In recent years they have included: Michelle Jenneke, Nick Andrews, Jacob McCorry, Jordan Shelley and Rachel Pace.

Zisti’s next wave of talent include: Tiana Death, Imogen Breslin, Katie Devitt, Harry Andrews, Courtney Cattell, Emily Britten, Nic Thomson, Nick Dang, Nat Setiadji, Mia Hemsworth and more.

We caught up with Mick Zisti about his coaching career.
