Peter Clifford


My passion is working holistically on an athlete’s development. I believe that sustained excellence can only be based on a foundation where the athlete has achieved personal balance. I dislike one dimensional athletes and encourage diversity in their development. I believe in consistency, hard work and love for the sport. I work hard on the athlete being able to sustain the best load possible appropriate to their goals and stage of development.

I like to work in a number of ways as I believe in tailoring a coaching solution to the athlete’s individual needs is key to their success. I consult to self-coached athletes and sports organisations and find this area of work to be both fulfilling and beneficial to the client.

Coach Development::

In my experience as a coach and coach educator I have been fortunate enough to mentor a number of number of new coaches. I enjoy the process of helping new coaches set their program up, look for athletes, develop their knowledge and gain experience.
