Some of you may have noticed a new face poolside over the last couple of weeks.
We have engaged Raphael Pirat as Technical Director for our club to support all players and coaches.
Raph will be focused on developing pathways for both players and coaches as they progress from the U12 Academy right through to their entry to the National League team.
Over the next few months Raph will be communicating opportunities and initiatives in the areas of skills training, game strategy, swim training, core strength and conditioning, sports psychology and nutrition.
A French native, Raph has an extensive career playing for Olympic Nice, Montpellier and the French National teams.
This is Raph’s second stint in Australia having held roles at UNSW and WPNSW.
Raph is planning to get to as many training sessions and games as he can to observe, provide feedback and develop training programs.
