Alistair Tait

The Aussie Aths Mornington /  Franskston  program is run by a local coaching team headed by Frankston Athletic Club coach Alistair Tait.

“I am passionate about empowering kids and providing a fun learning environment that also challenges kids to improve.”

“It is not just for those interested in athletics. Aussie Aths will help kids who play netball, basketball, AFL, soccer or any of the 100’s of other sports on offer. The basic skills required for most land-based sports are either running, jumping or throwing or a combination of all three, and that’s what we teach at Aussie Aths.”
