Coaching Team

Meet the Synergie Coaching Team

For both of us it has always been about helping others improve. We are passionate about sport and it has given us the opportunity to work with & learn from great athletes and coaches from all over the World.

We only work with a small number of athletes on a 1-2-1 basis, purely to ensure that you get the personalised training programme that will help you achieve your goal.

We never forget that this is your journey and that we are privileged to be part of it.

A little bit about us.

As well as holding the highest qualifications that British Triathlon award, we continue with our professional development and in recent years Di has completed the International Olympic Committe (IOC) Certificate in Mental Health in Elite Sport & the British Triathlon Female Coach Mentoring programme; Scott has completed both the UK Coaching Performance Foundation programme for Talent Coaches and Sport England Connect Coaches programme for coaches working with talented athletes.

Currently Di is studying the IOC Safeguarding Officer in Sport Certificate, the UK Coaching Talent Coach programme and the Talented Athleted Scolarship Scheme (TASS) Understanding Transition course, while Scott is studying on the IOC Nutrition Diploma.

The Team Behind The Team

Workshops & Outreach Support

We are always looking to support & develop athletes, coaches, partners & parents, and have the skills to deliver virtual or face to face workshops covering subjects such as, but not limited to, mental health; paedatric physiology; clean sport; strength & conditioning; wellbeing including sleep hygiene & nutrition.

Support Services

The coaches have also worked hard to put in place a support system for the athletes, that as coaches, we feel cannot be rivalled within any team environment. We have a number of practitioners who work with the coaches and athletes either on a team or one to one basis.

Overseas Training Venues

Through our work with World Triathlon and our network of coaches, we have coaching contacts in a number of Countries that can support athletes training outside of the UK.

Psychology Support

We work with a number of accredited Sports Psychologists that can support the athlete and their partners/parents

Physiology Support

We have a network of soft tissue therapists, physiotherapists & chiroprationers that we can recommend.

Athlete Welfare

Both have completed the UK Coaching Duty to Care course, consiting of Inclusion, Diversity, Well-being, Mental Health & Safeguarding. Both Scott & Di tutor & deliver UK Coaching Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshops.
