GET TO KNOW VAUGHN

My first real engagements in my professional career have been as a volunteer in sports, assisting in coaching younger athletes while being coached myself at the soccer academy I attended for several years.

I have worked in retail and hospitality for 5 years, before transitioning to a professional coaching career, working mainly with recreational athletes via Melbourne Sports Institute, an agency for sports coaches and Umpires, then as a gymnastics coach for Belgravia Leisure.

I have engaged in multiple volunteering opportunities, from sports management events to athlete fitness testing and everything in between, with organizations such as Netball Vic, Swim Vic, and Victoria University to name a few.

I have my own Personal Training Business which I started in 2018. I also work as a Small Group Training Coach and Gym Floor Instructor for Council run Community Leisure Facilities.

PERSONAL:

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COACHING FOOTBALLERS?

 

They don’t normally roll around on the ground like soccer players when they get tackled.

 

Kidding aside, my previous experience coaching footballs has been positive. The energy, banter & willingness to upskill themselves are highly admirable traits and makes my coaching enjoyable.

 

 

WHICH MOVIE & OR BOOK HAS IMPACTED YOU?

 

Books: Way of the Peaceful Warrior – Dan Millman

 

Holy Bible – KJV

 

The Road Less Travelled Scott M. Peck

 

7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens – Sean Covey

 

How to Make Friends & Influence People – Dale Carnegie

 

Atomic Habits – James Clear

 

 

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE WAY TO SPEND YOUR DAY OFF?

 

Try to catch up on any urgent household tasks, spend quality time with family and overall have a restful, relaxing day with some soccer fit-in, if time allows.

 WHICH SONG DO YOU NEVER GET SICK OF LISTENING TO?

 You’re beautiful – James Blunt

 FAVOURITE DESTINATION FOR A HOLIDAY AND WHY?

Queensland – The warm, humid weather while still being in Australia is nice and it feels like going home since I was born there.
