Nardelli Coaching was formed in 2011. Lauren has a netball and athletics background while Rob has worked in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years. We share a passion for working with young people and knew that through combining our knowledge and experience, we could start something special.
It was humble beginnings, coaching one group of 14 girls through some netball skills and fitness programs. Today, we coach around 300 young people each week through our various programs...
and we are loving every minute of it!
In our spare time, we enjoy spending quality time with our children, Mia and Luka. We also enjoy spending time in the gym working on staying fit and healthy.

Lauren has represented Victoria in netball at a national level and umpired netball at a national level. She has been coaching players aged 3 upwards for around 15 years now.
Through her experience and knowledge, she is able to provide a comprehensive level of mentoring that is rare in the sport. Her high-level experience in each facet of the game means that those players she coaches are very well rounded, complete players.
Lauren's experience having also competed at a junior national level in athletics has helped form her coaching approach. Each netball player is seen as an athlete first. Through this approach, players will grasp and perform more advanced skills. The underpinning focus of all her programs is in developing the complete athlete.
