Casey Hudgson and Steph Beams have been announced as Mulwala’s senior netball coaches for 2014.FIONA BLICK January 14, 2014 2:48pm
This is the fourth year as senior coach for Casey who boasts an impressive track record, leading the A Grade side to three consecutive grand finals and winning two of them.
Steph is taking on the senior coaching role for the first time this year after coaching the juniors and C Grade side previously and being a top grade player for Mulwala for several years.
Both Casey and Steph will be player coaches and look forward to the challenges in the season ahead.
“Having two coaches runs really well,” Casey said.
“We will always have a back up option and we can bounce ideas off each other.
“Having another person beside you gives you an immediate confirmation of what you are thinking.”
Being able to pass on knowledge to other players is one of the benefits of being a coach according to Casey.
“It matures you as a person and you are a leader on and off the court,” she said.
“I am looking forward to working with Steph who has achieved a lot as a player.
“It will be wonderful for her to develop other aspects of her netballing career now.”
Steph said she was thrilled when Casey offered her the joint coaching role.
“Casey has such a lot of knowledge to pass on, I can’t wait to get started,” Steph said.
“It is a great family environment at the club and many of the players are mums.
“We all help each other out and really have a great time.”
In terms of goals set for 2014, Steph said they will definitely be aiming for a fourth grand final berth.
“We will see what happens in the trials in terms of the actual line up of players but six out of the nine girls from last year have indicated they want to play again,” she said.
“We would love to see some new faces at training as well and pre-season has just started and will run for four weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm.
“After pre-season we will do the trials to pick the teams before the start of the season.”
