The Airport West football club is excited to announce the appointment of one of our homegrown juniors, Trent Rogers, as Senior Coach for the 2021 season.
Trent returns to Airport West after a decorated senior playing career at both Airport West and Prahran Assumption (VAFA). Prior to that he spent a year in the VFL with Port Melbourne under Gary Ayres. Playing in over 150 senior games across nine seasons, Trent has been a vice Captain and strength and conditioning coach of both clubs, as well as winning best and fairest awards along his playing career, a Players Player award and also a Senior Premiership with the PAFC.
Along with a highly competitive and professional approach, Trent has spent 10+ years as a professional Strength & Conditioning Coach, where he has worked with an extensive number of AFL, VFL and TAC Cup players along with other high performance athletes. After a year away from the game, and the 2021 season fast approaching, Trent has his sights set on having the playing and coaching group physically and mentally ready to go for what looks to be an exciting season ahead at Hansen Reserve.
Seniors and Under 18.5s return to training on Wednesday January 27 at 6:00pm with all past and present players invited. There will also be a free BBQ for everyone including members and supporters so get along and check out our season 2021 foundation.
