        Jay now works full time as a strength and conditioning coach, dividing his time between the Western Jets, Vic Metro, Collingwood, WSSC and his study. Jay has worked with a variety of athletes including AFL, NBL, NCAA Div 2 College Football, NCAA Div 1 Basketball, VFL, TAC Cup and VIS/AIS athletes across a range of sports.

          Chris Dikranis

          Performance Coach

          Chris is a Strength and Conditioning Coach who is based in Melbourne, Victoria. Chris met Christian and the WSSC team as a work experience student recovering from his ACL rehabilitation. From the first encounter, Chris developed a large appreciation for the industry and began his journey as an athlete within the WSSC facility, which brought him back to playing at his beloved club, Bentleigh Greens in the National Premier league.

          Over the course of half a decade, Chris developed as an athlete who observed, learned and applied Christians philosophies, completed an internship at WSSC to gain respect and growth in the industry and began coaching a wide range of eager and successful athletes who he continues to work with to this day.

          Chris was exposed to many experiences as a junior athlete which acted as a catalyst to develop a large junior athletic development program at WSSC. The program allows driven, passionate and enthusiastic junior athletes to be exposed to the effective WSSC methodologies that have been proven time and time again to optimise performance and reduce the risk of injury. Consequently, maximising opportunities for junior athletes to take their game to the next level.

          Having worked with Professional, Semi-Professional and amateur athletes across a number of different sports, Chris has developed a broad skill set that has allowed him to construct efficient systems that aim to maximise each and every individual’s athletic development.

          Through the exposure of many intelligent minds over the years with different coaches at WSSC, Chris has understood the criticality of translating the strength, power and speed developed in the gym into the fundamental motor skills completed across most sports. As a result, Chris has conducted a range of Speed, Acceleration and Change of Direction Programs that aim to bridge the gap between the gym and the field to ensure all athletic attributes are optimised.

          As a Performance Coach at WSSC, Chris aims to implement a holistic approach; strength, power and speed to mindfulness and recovery. Allowing individuals to reach their “true” potential in terms of performance and life is something Chris will always cherish and strive to obtain via the integration of real coaching experience.
