Today on the podcast we are continuing with our exciting NCAA interviews with Brett Nelligan from the University of Maryland Gymnastics.
Brett is about to enter his fourteenth season as head coach of the Terrapins, he is the fourth head coach of the Maryland gymnastics team taking over the role from his father, Bob Nelligan.
The Maryland coaching team of Brett, Erinn Dooley, and JJ Ferreira are doing a fantastic job with some record-breaking seasons in the last few years and are on an awesome upward trajectory.
After spending some time with Brett and the team at Maryland, I wanted to have him on the podcast to pick his brain on what is important to him to make progress from a performance objective scoring point of view, but also from a health, happiness, and longevity point of view.
It’s challenging to have multiple kinds of success and upward momentum year after year, so to see someone who can do that really well, and is a great human I had to have him on to share his knowledge.
