At the age of 13 he was selected to have a group goal keepers training session with Lachlan Dreher (former Australian goalkeeper), over 2 weeks. The knowledge he instilled into Tavis over the 2 weeks was to set a strong foundation for the Keeper he was to become. Now having retired and hung up the kickers, he finds great fulfilment in passing on the techniques and styles of goal keeping to others.
Since 2014 he has been coordinating goal keeper’s academies. In 2017, he moved to Waverley to coach PLR Men and in 2018 will be Assistant Coach to PL Men focusing on defence. While he has enjoyed substantial success with previous academies, he now relishes the opportunity to work with a new group and want to create opportunity for keepers from any clubs to join and benefit ‘The Keeper Academy’.
