Our Wonderful Coaches

Meet our coaches! Twisters is made up a very diverse group of coaches and staff  with all types of experience and backgrounds. We’re very proud to have all of these coaches as part of our team and welcome you to spend a minute getting to know your child’s coach a little better.

You may see some of our coaches moving between our Northcote and Showgrounds campuses – it’s great to have both locations so connected! Our coaches do their best to make themselves available for a chat, however, they have eight kids waiting on them, so if you need more than just a few minutes please organise a suitable time for a longer chat.
