“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their growth.”

Destry Gillette, Head Coach

Coach Gillette began playing Australian rules football later in life, joining the Denver Bulldogs in 20 years ago in 2000. He won multiple flags (national championships) during his time with the Division 1 and Division 4 teams. His tall stature (6’3″) gave him the leg up in-air contests against opposing teammates. Unfortunately his time playing the sport decreased due to needing multiple knee surgeries.

In addition to footy, Coach Gillette enjoys playing basketball and volleyball, as well as going skiing in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. He has spent many years coaching his two daughters’ various sports teams, helping some of his athletes gain access to the age-grade national team pathways.

Part of his vision as head coach of the Centennial Tigers is dedicating himself to helping the women learn each others’ strengths and areas needing improvement; getting the women physically fit individually and as a team; and fostering a strong internal team atmosphere.
