Episode #11 – Coaching insight with Australian Mens Cricket Team Physical Performance Coach, Aaron Kellett.
Just before the start of the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne, a traditional marquee event on the Australian sporting calendar, I was fortunate to interview Aaron Kellett, professional S&C Coach and currently the Physical Performance Coach for the Australian Cricket Team, one of the country’s highest profile and most popular sporting teams.
Aaron has been a S&C Coach at the elite level in AFL football, cricket and tennis for the better part of 15 years, and this Podcast gives you direct insight into not only his pathway but also the influences and coaches that have shaped him over this career.
He speaks very openly and honestly about coach athlete communication and building that essential coach athlete bond of trust and respect, and how he now feels he has found his own unique style and method in order to get the best out of his athletes.
For someone in such a position, which brings with it its own unique levels of pressure and expectation, Aaron presents a calm and calculated approach to a sport that would challenge any coach and a team profile that demands results.
This is a coach that has learnt his trade through many years of hard work, dedication and commitment to his profession – which now allows him to command the respect and position that he operates in.
If you want to understand how elite coaches operate at the highest level, Aaron will shine a light on exactly that in this Episode.
