Leigh Nugent joins the Level 3 Managing National and National League Teams Program

We are pleased to welcome former Australian Swim Team Head Coach Leigh Nugent to the October 2014 Level 3 Managing National and National League Teams Program. 

Leigh has a wealth of experience working and travelling with successful Australian teams to Olympics and World Championships.  Notably he also has experienced the tough side of elite sport when it doesn't all go to plan.  Leigh will be a fantastic addition to the upcoming Level 3 programs.        


Leigh is a sought after elite mentor coach, consultant and former head coach of the Australian Swim Team. He was the head coach at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Under his leadership, Australia tallied seven gold, five silver and three bronze, its best ever haul at an Olympics outside of Australia, and second only to the team which represented Australia at the 1956 Summer Olympics.

Following the 2004 Olympics, he returned to his previous job as the head youth coach, but took on the top job again in 2009 which included the Commonwealth Games, World Championships, World Short Course Championships and the London 2012 Olympics.

Leigh will be attending the programs as our expert in residence.
