Turns 1

Although propelperform was started in June 2012, it was only on September 2nd 2013 that we got up and running (long story that anyone trying to get a website done will probably identify with).

First up, thanks to our contributors who have shared their ideas, experience and wisdom. You’ll no doubt recognise many of the names below as leaders in their respective fields.

Secondly, thanks to those who visit, share, like, and comment. To progress the coaching profession we need to all contribute.

Thirdly, if you think you have some ideas that might help other CoachesAthletes or Parents, drop us a line here. Especially female coaches, we’re deeply embarrassed that we don’t have a single female contributor (looking at you: Suki Hobson, Dee Jennings, Kristie Taylor, Kelly Beahan, Sally Bailey, Emily Nolan, etc.).
