Coach nets a schol­ar­ship

Comment News (Gosnells) - - Sport -

SOUTH­ERN River Stars and Cru­saders Net­ball Club coach Blair Pasco is one of five win­ners of the in­au­gu­ral Bette Al­li­son coach­ing schol­ar­ships.

Pasco re­ceived one of two re­gional tar­geted coach­ing schol­ar­ships aimed at fur­ther­ing the growth and de­vel­op­ment of hard-work­ing coaches.

The South­ern River Col­lege teacher, who also coaches the South East De­mons in the West Aus­tralian Net­ball League, said she was ex­cited to give back to the net­ball com­mu­nity.

“I can use my new breadth of knowl­edge gained from the schol­ar­ship to help net­ballers of all abil­i­ties,” she said.

Net­ball WA com­mu­nity gen­eral man­ager Liz Booth said the schol­ar­ships would have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the game at grass­roots level.

“It is won­der­ful to be able to give these in­di­vid­u­als the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue to grow and de­velop so that coach­ing across the state can con­tinue to flour­ish.”

Pasco will re­ceive part of a $5000 prize pool shared among the four other win­ners.
