Far­relly eyes ma­jor coach­ing gig

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - SPORT -

KERRIANNE Far­relly will travel to and from Bris­bane ev­ery week in a bid to push for higher coach­ing hon­ours.

Far­relly, who is in­volved with Her­vey Bay club Bul­lets, is as­sis­tant coach for Net­ball Queens­land’s 19-and-un­ders.

The squad par­tic­i­pated in their fi­nal se­lec­tion trial at the week­end, where Far­relly and NQ of­fi­cials were tasked with pick­ing play­ers who could con­tinue to the top.

“The 19s is all about the push through to get as many through to Fu­sion and na­tional teams,” she said.

The week­end is as im­por­tant for Far­relly, who wants to coach at elite state, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lev­els, as it is for the play­ers.

It is no easy feat given she is one of the only coaches who drives hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres to par­tic­i­pate.

“For my path­way to keep go­ing there’s a lot of work I need to do and Net­ball Queens­land has been sup­port­ive to make sure I stay on task,” she said.

“It’s easy, as we talk about travel and fam­ily and bal­anc­ing that, to stay ‘stuff it, I can’t do it’, but I love it.

“To be re­in­stated as as­sis­tant coach is awe­some, but I’ve got goals to go the step higher, to look at head coach of un­der-age teams.”
