Rowing coach Emma Molenaar began her association with St Joseph’s College, Hunter’s Hill during the 2017/18 season when she was appointed as head coach of the Year 8 quad sculls squad.
The former UTS rower was once again in charge of the same young rowers as they progressed to the Year 9 quad sculls.
The professional sports coach is also a qualified physiotherapist and she’s transferred some of those skills across.
Some of those invaluable skills Molenaar uses with her physiotherapy clients, ie kinesiology, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and personal development -mind and body – have aided her clients in a more efficient recovery.
Molenaar applied the same principles to her rowing squad and once they’re aware of this holistic approach, she says they’re more consistent with their performances.
This approach helped her squad achieve some great results during the 2018/19 season.
