Lifelong Lessons

Sports are more than skill. Our coaches become role models and teach valuable life lessons, such as building confidence and discipline.

Develop Skill & Confidence

Backyard Coach has been great for athletes of all ages and skill levels seeking to stay active, learn new skills, but more importantly, develop confidence. Did you know 70% of children drop out of sports by age 13? Private coaching is a great solution to keep children active and enjoying sports.

Since launching in 2016, Backyard Coach has worked with hundreds of coaches and athletes all around Australia. Our network of coaches has helped athletes of all sports and levels, from learning to swim to representing their state basketball team.
