Since it's inception in 2002, Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy's (SCTA) Head Coach and Director Toby Coote has been guiding triathletes of all fitness levels to achieve outstanding progress, improvement and results. With his extraordinary depth of experience, Toby is committed to providing individual training programs and advice to help athletes meet their specific training needs.
Based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Toby formed SCTA to address the lack of available, quality training and triathlon coaching, and has now evolved into a fully integrated, multi-disciplined coaching service dedicated to the sport of triathlon.
As a Triathlon Australia (TA) recognised Level 2 Triathlon Coach, TryStars accredited Coach and former TA National Talent Identification and Development Program Regional Coach, Toby's sporting and coaching background can only described as impressive. In 1995, he reached the highest level any triathlete had achieved on the Sunshine Coast being named in the Australian Junior Elite Team for the World Championships to be held in Mexico. Progressing to the next level, he relocated to the Gold Coast to train and learn under master triathlon coach, Col Stewart, where he went on to race for six years as a professional triathlete.
His philosophy now is not about competing for himself, but rather, developing and nurturing athletes on the beautiful Sunshine Coast and providing written programs to cater for athletes of all health and fitness levels.
