Transition from athlete to coach: Louise Sauvage

Transition from athlete to coach: Louise Sauvage

Whether you are an elite athlete or not, retirement from sport can be a significant challenge. During their career, sport can consume a significant part of their life and when it is over they are left with a massive space in their life. Many still want a connection with sport and move into administration, officiating and coaching.

In this interview, one of the greatest Paralympians in the history of sport, LOUISE SAUVAGE, tells us about her transition into a very successful coaching career, which has seen her now coach Paralympic and world champions.

Ever wondered how clubs form? They are, not always, but invariably coach-driven. A recent survey of coaches of entries of the NSW Junior Championships, highlighted little pockets of growth in NSW country and the metropolitan area. This growing seed can often be the arrival of a coach to an area, or maybe a coach resumes coaching after a break or a coach seeing a need and an opportunity.

Coach Profile – Andae Kalemusic

Coach Profile – Andae Kalemusic

Five years ago when endurance coach Andae Kalemusic moved from the Blue Mountains, it was a loss for the area of a talented and passionate coach. But it was not long before she re-emerged coaching on the South Coast and suddenly it was obvious there was something happening in coaching on the NSW South Coast with more athletes appearing at state and national titles. In less than two years Kalemusic has already seen tremendous success with Jaylah Hancock-Cameron placing an outstanding fourth at the national championships in December. There will be many more achievements for Kalemusic’s athletes, but she brings so much more to the area than quality coaching. She generates a great environment for athletes to achieve their best, whatever that is, and friendship and comradery amongst the squad in a positive atmosphere. The NSW South Coast is indeed fortunate to have Andae Kalemusic coaching in its midst.

In this interview we learn more about Kalemusic, her coaching philosophy and mentors. About her own career as an athlete and her coaching highlights to date.
