Roos ap­point net­ball coaches

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

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.”

The Un­der 16s are cur­rently go­ing through se­lec­tions for en­quiries please con­tact Steph on 0439 258 848.

Se­niors are cur­rently do­ing some pre-pre­sea­son train­ing for any en­quiries please con­tact Ge­orgie on 0438458210.
