Tjaart's record the past five years speaks for itself. First as coach of the Garsfontein 1stXV and since 2017 coach of the Monnas 1stXV. He coached his sides to 5 finals in a row in the VirSeker Macro School's competition, winning the competition the last 4 years. Since being in charge of the Monnas 1stXV they won the Noordvaal competition every year under the guidance of Tjaart.
Tjaart sees himself as a student of the game with the analysis and balanced feedback to his players as the cornerstone of his coaching approach. During 2018 the 1stXV team of Monnas lost 3 games in a row but Tjaart refused to criticise them and continued to motivate the team, making them believe in themselves.
After losing to Helpmekaar in a league match against Helpmekaar 18-27 Tjaart and his team outsmarted Helpmekaar to win the VirSeker Cup with a massive 57-11. Tjaart just showing why is so highly rated and the deserved winner of the 2018 Coach Of The Year Award.
