FWCC specializes in coaching athletics and triathlon. As athletes themselves, the coaches possess great expertise and knowledge in sports science and aim to bring their high performance coaching pedagogy to the masses.
Back in 2010, after coming back from training the Commando's Army Half Marathon teams, Coach Fabian wanted to inculcate the same grit and tenacity in developing youths. Already a homegrown name in athletics, he set out to get accredited in coaching from Australian Track & Field Coaches Association (ATFCA), International Triathlon Union (ITU) and International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).
Together with expertise in Exercise and Sports Science from Coach Shawn, FWCC has grown to be an all-rounded elite coaching avenue based on the Long Term Athlete Development model.
Their motto is "Creating Champions", but by that, they do not simply mean winning races and getting gold medals. They strive to create champions in individuals in every aspect of life. From success in athletics and triathlons, FWCC athletes carry the same perseverance in life.
