Our journey began last year around late August when Christian decided that he wanted to pursue and develop his skills in football.

Right away from the first session, Christian felt comfortable and in great hands. We trained almost every week and the development that Christian noticed was amazing. Right away his confidence grew and skills have grown immensely.

Christian looks forward and enjoys training with Ange every week cause Ange is an amazing coach, mentor and friend. He teaches proper skill development, has patience and caters for every skill level. Christian can’t wait and for his next personal individual training session with Ange.

We can’t thank him enough as Christian believes he has gained and great mentor as a coach and a friend for life. Who knows maybe one day he might fulfil his goal and make it on the big stage following Ange’s footsteps.

Christain and family


My boys were coached by Ange over a couple of years and I was impressed with his natural way of relating to the boys and making them feel comfortable.

I felt that his coaching had the right balance of encouragement and constructive direction. I was impressed with the information he provided post sessions with his coaching critiques using innovative visual and audio feedback directly to my mobile. There were also monthly analytics data provided on my son’s training which gave me the information to see if there were improvement and areas they had to work harder in.

This impressed me immensely as I had the information which keeps the coach accountable and why this was such great value. I found Ange to be a very good role model for my boys and highly value his coaching.

It would be an honour…here we go:-

My two boys started with Ange seven months ago and not only has Ange taught them unbelievable football skills but he has also given them so much confidence.

My youngest whom always doubted himself and had no confidence due to bullying issues and my eldest son who suffers from Anxiety has done an entire 360 degree turn.

Ange is a great mentor and my boys look up to him…he has changed my boys lives. They wish their week would hurry up so they can train with Ange on a Saturday.

I can’t thank Ange enough for what he has done for my boys and my family.

Running efficiency

Aussie rules football is a game of repeated speed so naturally players experience different levels of fatigue throughout the game. Efficiency in running plays a critical role as allows you to maintain your running form and posture despite medium to high levels of fatigue.
Running efficiency ensures that you will maintain a level of quality around the ground in your movement irrespective of fatigue levels.


Coordination is the ability to repeatedly execute a sequence of movements smoothly and accurately. Running with a football and executing requires the ability to coordinate our limbs to achieve a successful outcome. This is an important area to develop from as young as possible to ensure an efficient foundation in movement has been developed.

Game knowledge

Providing young players with game knowledge ensures a greater level of confidence.
I utilise a part of our sessions to talk through realistic game scenario’s and provide an understanding on the basics of positioning around the ground, reading the play and percentage spots for possession of the footy.


Maintaining possession of the football around the ground is every teams focus.
Therefore, an ability to handle the football efficiently and consistently is of great importance. In this program we focus on drills to develop ball handling abilities for a greater level of consistency. Kicking technique is also filmed, analysed and critiqued.


As a member of the footysca program you will have a training file created with a collection of training data to ensure that the trajectory of your development is up! Our metrics are specific to the game of aussie rules and consistent with the athletic requirements of the game.
