Tongala Netball Club has appointed Dylan Nexhip as its A-grade coach for the 2013 Murray Netball League season.
Nexhip has been involved with the club from a young age, with both his parents being involved both as players and committee members, and his appointment has been well received by the players.
He has played football with the club for many years but is giving up playing next season to focus on his netball coaching role.
He co-coached the under-15s last season to a premiership win and has always had a keen interest in netball and is excited about the challenge of coaching A-grade.
Nexhip has already been in talks with a number of possible new players for the club.
Andrea Reid has been reappointed C-grade coach and will be assisted by Tracey Hughes.
Reid missed playing last season while pregnant and is hoping Tongala’s C-grade can achieve back-to-back premierships so she can enjoy the success as a player as well as coach. The club is still sourcing coaches for its B and C-reserve teams and anyone interested is asked to phone Vanessa Reid on 0447
Abbey Pettifer is returning to the club after a couple of years playing for Shepparton Swans in the Goulburn Valley League. Pettifer will coach the under-17s and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as a fresh young face for the girls to look up to. The club did not have enough players to field an under-17 side last season but is hopeful the appointment of Pettifer might encourage some new players to join.
Ashlee Candy is also returning to the club after a couple of years away and she will be coaching the under-15s.
Talented teenager Abbey Nexhip is taking on the coaching role of under-12s, and in her first year of coaching she will have the help of last year’s coach Vanessa Reid.
The club is delighted to have experienced last season’s Melbourne Vixens coach Julie Hoornweg coming to take a couple of pre-season training sessions this year.
