Every team from Net Set Go to Cadets will be allocated a coach that will facilitate a weekly training session and organise the team for Saturday games. The primary role of the coach is to ensure that all players within the team have a safe and fun environment where they can improve their netball skills.


Coaching positions within the club are voluntary; therefore the club strongly encourages parents to take on the role for their child’s team. It is recommended that coaches have a sound knowledge and understanding of netball but if you do not currently have this knowledge or would like to develop it further please still apply if interested as there will be a range of learning opportunities throughout the season. Please consider taking on this rewarding role for your child's team in the 2024 season.


The club also strongly encourages nominations from players aged 14-18 years who would like to develop their skills within the coaching sphere. It is recommending that players within this age group coach in pairs or as an assistant but they are also welcome to coach individually. Players wanting to coach will be supported throughout the season by their respective coaching convenor and will be required to attend a coaching information session.


For Opens the role of coach is filled by a player within the team. 

The Wahroonga Netball Club in 2024 will be offering a range of support avenues for all our coaches throughout the season including in-house coaching seminars and coaching manuals. There is also  an enormous amount of resource material available on the Coaching section of the KNA website as well as many coaching courses throughout the year. 

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact our coaching convenor Charlotte Cuda on
