History of Coach Approach
Coach Approach was established in 1995 by five Deakin University Students as a way of counteracting the downfall of sports participation. Former Melbourne Footballer and Media personality David Schwarz (The Ox) was one of the original Coach Approach creators and still plays an active role in support of the company. Libby Kirchner, one of the original partners is now the sole director of the company and has seen the company’s steady growth over its 20 year stint.
