One of Nat’s coaching highlights is the 2011 Sub-Junior 1 team which won the CASA comps with five firsts. The following year, the whole team bar one girl went up and the new Sub-junior team was very raw. However that team worked so hard and came second for 2012. For Nat this is what coaching is all about; “Coaching is hard work, it's tiring and sometimes you wonder if it’s all worth it, but when that little team gets up and you see how far they have come, it’s absolutely worth it”.
