James (Jamo) Porter will be commencing in the coming months as our new craft (board & ski) coach for the Dolphins (U/12-U/17) and the Senior Ski group.
Up until the age of 18 Jamo lived in and raced for Anglesea. He started nippers at the club in under 9's and was lucky enough to have a big group of kids his own age and older to train and race with. Jamo won his first state title as an under 9 in the board race and went on to win it again for the next 6 years in a row as well as multiple team medals and titles as a nipper.
As a senior competitor Jamo had great success for Anglesea and Victoria as a board and ski paddler and won the open Taplin with Anglesea as an under 17. After finishing school in Geelong he moved up to the Sunshine Coast to study Exercise and Sports Science and to continue training and racing. As an under 19 he won 6 medals at the Aussies including 2 gold. Since moving into the open age category at Alexandra Headlands SLSC, Jamo has won medals for both board and ski paddling at the national level and compete in the Ocean 6 Series at the highest level.
Having now completed his degree in Exercise and Sports Science and use this knowledge plus his own personal experience to create personalised and group training programs and sessions for athletes all over the country and in a variety of sports.
Jamo is super excited to come back home to where it all started for him and to give the kids the same help that he received in their position.
The first training session will be 10am, Sunday 6th May at the Club (followed by Bears and lunch at noon).
