Under the guidance of coach Matt Barber, Scott began as an athlete with Curtin Athletics Club in 2006 whilst a sprinter at Aquinas College.
During the early years of his training he commenced a degree program in Sports Science and found the techniques and practical knowledge learned from coach Matt Barber, to be reflected in the science of sprinting and strength training. Scott credits the time with Matt for teaching him effective methods for enhancing the mechanics and physiology of an individual to attain maximal velocity and rate of force development in many sports.
Scott has held the role of strength and conditioning coach for the Perth Demons WAFL team, The Aquinas College rowing and athletics teams and more recently the Chinese National Speed Skating Team. Scott coached Gao Tingyu, the China National 500m record holder, to a personal best time. Scott values his experience in China and the insights he learned from National coaches.
Scott now holds a Masters’ degree in Strength & Conditioning and level 2 accreditation with the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA).
