KELLY Hynes wants to bring a cul­ture of trust, fun and em­pow­er­ment to her new role as head coach of Cen­trals Trin­ity Beach Bull­dogs in the Cairns Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

In their sec­ond sea­son in the com­pe­ti­tion, Hynes will coach the Bull­dogs as well as act­ing as a co-coach for the Mar­lin Coast Mar­lins in the Queens­land State Net­ball League.

Hynes re­cently re­lo­cated to the Far North from Mel­bourne and has spent two years coach­ing ju­niors in Cairns and is ex­cited to take on both roles.

“We want to be a club that peo­ple en­joy play­ing at and want to come to each week,” Hynes said.

“I will work closely with the other coaches and se­nior play­ers men­tor­ing to en­sure they are con­stantly learn­ing about the game, coaches, team­mates and them­selves and that they have a say in the di­rec­tion of our club and their net­ball de­vel­op­ment.

“The club is only in its sec­ond year so it is im­por­tant we also de­velop a strong co­he­sion with all the other de­part­ments of our club, football and women’s football.

“Mov­ing into se­nior coach­ing for me is nat­u­ral pro- gres­sion es­pe­cially as ex­pe­ri­enced se­nior coaches seem to be a bit scarce in Cairns and there are many ex­cel­lent ju­nior coaches.

“Hav­ing a lo­cal team for the north­ern beaches al­lows net­ball to be ac­ces­si­ble to many more peo­ple cre­at­ing lo­cal train­ing and re­duced travel thus easy ac­ces­si­bil­ity.”

Hynes re­places play­er­coach Rhe­gan Hartwig from last sea­son.

EX­CITED: Kelly Hynes.
