THE Northern Hawks Netball Club has reappointed Kellie Woolnough as its State League opens coach for next season.
Woolnough has coached netball from grassroots to an elite level as assistant coach with the Tassie Spirit Australian Netball League team.
Her dedication to netball in Tasmania has extended to numerous state coaching roles and working with individuals in the TIS program.
"I am excited about the 2014 season," Woolnough said.
"It will be a great challenge and I am looking forward to working with our opens team.
"We will be focused on remaining highly competitive against strong competition and will continue to aim for nothing less than a berth in the finals."
Hawks player Steffi Grenda will again be opens assistant coach after recently completing her intermediate coaching accreditation.
It will be Grenda's third year in a coaching role.
The Hawks 19 and under team will be coached by Kellie Tahiri after a year as club president.
"It was time to have a break last year from the State League schedule but I kept busy coaching other groups," Tahiri said.
"The 2013, 15 and under state team have renewed my passion for coaching, they were a keen group of girls and developed a lot during the competition."
Tahiri will have Kate Lawrence as her assistant coach.
Tina Burr is taking on the role as the club's 16 and under development squad coach and the club welcomes Tania Dean as the assistant coach.
Ruth Tuohy will be coaching the club's youngest members as the 14 and under development coach.
Ann Pearce, opens manager and Wendy Draper, 19 and under manager, will again be crucial to the success of the club's State League teams.
"The club is extremely pleased to have quality coaches and managers in all positions and we are confident this will lead to more success for the Northern Hawks on court in 2014," Tahiri said.
Trial dates for the 2014 open and 19 and under teams are being held on Wednesday, October 9, from 6-8pm at Brooks High School gym.
Players turning 16 years and over in 2014 are eligible for selection.
