Mick MalthouseUpwell Ambassador
Mick in one of the most highly respected AFL legends around and one of the most genuine, friendly and caring blokes you will ever meet.
Mick has the most games coached at AFL/VFL level under his belt. He was the second longest serving coach of the Collingwood FC and in 2010 won the AFLCA Coach of the Year award having led his team to win the Premiership that year.
During his near decade-long reign over the West Coast Eagles, Mick coached the side to take out two Premierships, in 1992 and then again in 1994 making him the most successful coach in the history of the club.
Mick himself was a premiership player in 1980 with Richmond FC and also played for St Kilda FC to a total of 174 games.
Extremely health focused, Mick remains very active and has a true appreciation for the power of movement and conservative treatments of pain, injury and illness and for that reason he so genuinely aligned with the Upwell ethos.
Mick visits Upwell weekly to maintain his physical wellbeing and is cared for by Matthew Stanlake for physiotherapy, Pat O’Connell for podiatry and Tara Blair for massage.
