Roos appoint netball coaches
The Corowa Rutherglen Football Netball club is excited to confirm netball coaches for the 2017 season.
Committee member Ro Black told the Free Press she was thrilled that Georgie Bruce had agreed to lead A Grade for a second term.
“Georgie’s passion and enthusiasm last year was not only great for the netball club but also for the wider Roos environment,” she said.
“Next year Georgie will also take on the extra responsibility of being the head coach, overseeing and mentoring our other coaches to ensure that the whole senior playing squad are developing and improving their skills to the same standard.”
The club is also set to welcome Noel Halton to their coaching team next year.
“Noel has lots of coaching experience having coached at a junior level for the Rutherglen Cats and more recently coaching a number of the Wodonga and District representative junior teams,” Ro said.
“Coaching at an O&M level was Noel’s next goal and we believe he will fit well under the guidance of Georgie.
“Noel is a very passionate netball coach and always keen to learn more.”
Nicole said C Grade would be coached by Sophie Hanrahan.
“Sophie shared the coaching role last year of the Under 16s with Darby and had great success,” she said.
“To build on her coaching experience, Sophie will be looking after the C Grade.
“Sophie is a great A Grade player and has a lot of knowledge to pass onto our younger group.
“The club is keen to use the C Grade again as the development team, so Sophie experience and skills will be invaluable.”
Nicole said the Under 16s would be coached by Steph Clancy.
“Steph co-coached C Grade last year and has put up her hand this year to do the Under 16s,” she said.
“Like, Sophie, Steph is a great player for the club and has lots to offer the young Joeys next year.
“As a committee we were keen to follow through on our values from last year and to appoint coaches who will teach, develop and challenge the players at our club to be better netballers, striving to push our players to the highest standard possible, while giving them opportunities that they may not get elsewhere and to build resilience in them all.”
