My name is Jesse Kennedy and I am a student at WINTEC in Hamilton, where I am currently studying Sport and Exercise Science. I have played and coached cricket from an early age and have experienced the highs and lows that comes with playing at a competitive level. Coaching is a passion of mine as it gives me an opportunity to help younger athletes fulfil their potential, in both sport and life. I have recently started coaching tennis and have had an amazing group of people help me on my journey. Focusing on creating a safe, stimulating and fun environment where progress is celebrated is extremely important to me and I truly believe that athletes who feel valued are more likely to buy into the process.
