Juerg has developed his coaching skills in Switzerland and brings a focus of combined events to his coaching.
Juerg has coached track and field for about 30 years, starting to coach some athletes in his club in Europe while still competing himself. He specialized in hurdles (short & long) as well as 400m, but competed at least once a year in a multi-event (decathlon) and this is where his philosophy in coaching comes from: versatility makes and supports a specialist.
After moving to Canada he became involved in coaching his son’s soccer team until he started coaching with Caltaf in 2010.
Currently Jureg coaches the Provincial Development group putting a lot of emphasis on developing the skills of young athletes. His goal is that each and every athlete has fun and takes pride in his/her accomplishments whenever they compete and reach a new personal best.
