Kylie Acford - Senior Coach

Active living and racing have been a huge part of Kylie’s life from a young age. Her parents entered her in her first triathlon when she was 7. Since then she has competed in swimming, running and triathlon events but fell in love with coaching when she was 16. She now has 14 years of coaching experience but has focused on triathlon, particularly triathlon swimming, for the last 5 years.

Since moving back to Victoria 4 years ago, she has worked with many of the triathlon clubs and coached a wide range of age groups and abilities from novice to professional athletes. Kylie strives to keep her technical and coaching knowledge as current as possible – she is an enthusiastic student of the sport.
