Jeandre (JD) Marais has a National Diploma in Sports Management as well as Marketing and is currently doing a B Tech Marketing. He has always had a love for all sport and physical activities. He coached Rugby and Cricket to Primary school children for 4 years and enjoyed coaching so much as he finds it so rewarding.
Here is JD's quick story on how he started with MTD and has now become an assistant coach to our PE athletes
I decided to enter the Corporate Ironman in Port Elizabeth as it looked like such a fun and easy event. I mean it is so short, or so I thought. That is when I started training with my coach Richard Lawrie. I soon released that this sport and lifestyle fits me like a glove and started chatting to him about also coaching and training the athletes. The group of athletes we have in PE are so amazing and I am so excited for the future and seeing these athletes grow. Being part the MTD Coaching team is so cool and they have welcomed me with open arms.
Welcome to the team JD! We are sure you will fit in just perfectly with all our MTD bunch and we look forward to the inevitable great things from you as a coach!
