Meet our 2018 Coaching Team


We are very excited to introduce to you our 2018 coaching team!

We are so happy to have this team on board, all of which are bringing with them some fresh ideas and their impressive experience to our club.

Coaching our top squad, Sue Jones and Dani Johnson have worked together for many years. Dani is an advance level coach and brings with her 10+ years coaching experience (she is also coaching Premier League Reserves this year so we're very fortunate to have her on board!). We're also thrilled to welcome back Sue to the AUNC coaching team this year. Sue is an intermediate level coach with over over 15 years experience coaching in various competitions, including AMND Premier League Reserves, SAPSASA and school competitions.

We're also pleased to welcome back Meryl Richards and Karen Holder. After joining AUNC in 2017, Meryl has been an invaluable and much loved member of our coaching team. Meryl gained her level 2 (intermediate) coaching accreditation in 2001 and brings with her many years of experience and an impressive depth of netball knowledge. After helping out at an assistant coaching level in 2017, Karen will join the coaching team this year on a more full time basis. A long supporter of AUNC, we're very excited to have Karen back on board again this season.

Last but not least, our player-coaches; Maddie Duffield and Portia Vail. Maddie and Portia have both played for AUNC for some years and we are looking forward to not only having them more involved with the club but also seeing them work with our senior coaches to develop their coaching skills. Maddie is also our Coaches & Players Liaison and Umpire Coordinator, so let's give her some love!

The 2018 coaching team will be at our first pre-season training session on Thursday 8th of February, so make sure you say hello and make them feel welcome!

Registrations for the 2018 season are open until February 23rd. See more information here.
