Out of Touch documents the unique experiences of Western Australians during the COVID-19 pandemic that hit Australia in early 2020.

When Brad Ness and his team couldn’t train together anymore at the Western Australian Institute of Sport, they got creative. Rather than focus on what they couldn’t do or didn’t have, Brad gave his team the autonomy to define their own training days and presented an opportunity to grow as athletes: he asked each person how he could support them to be the best athlete. He needed them to put the Tokyo Games in the back of their minds, for now. A caring and compassionate coach, Brad brings us on the journey of how COVID-19 brought this team closer together.
