New to the program for 2022, Jacqui also brings a wealth of experience in coaching. In a refreshing turn, Jacqui approached the Geelong Netball Club looking for a position to further develop her coaching expertise.  Rather than hunting down coaches it was exciting to see someone with the motivation and drive to seek out the opportunities that the club offers. Jacqui has been coaching both senior and junior netball since 2008 at Newcomb Power, St Joseph’s Football Netball Club and now at Otway Districts Football Netball Club. She also completed her Intermediate Coaching accreditation in 2021. In addition, Jacqui is an experienced umpire having been a GFL panel umpire, mentor and co-ordinator.

Another new coach to our program in 2022, Taryn’s passion for netball and the development of young players is evident from the moment you meet her. Coaching and playing from a young age, Taryn describes herself as ‘a netball tragic’. Having played and coached as a junior at Portarlington, she is now Co-Junior Coaching Coordinator at Ocean Grove. Taryn is also a C Badged umpire and mentor for trainee umpires. Her ability to take up tasks and verbalise her instructions and opinions from the get-go has the senior coaches excited as to her future in the program.

This year we welcome Tyra back to Flyers. From juniors at South Barwon through GFL representative, Barwon representative and Flyers player to Cougar’s training partner in 2018 Tyra has returned to develop her skills as a coach. Her love for netball and the experience gained in coaching at club level has inspired her to commit to the Flyers Program where she will have the opportunity to be mentored by our excellent coaching group.

She is passionate about helping every girl in the program reach their goals, great and small, and assisting them in becoming the netballer’s they want to be.

During Tyra’s participation in the program as a player she showed exceptional leadership, intelligence, empathy for others and commitment. We have no doubt that she will bring this to her coaching role and are looking forward to her contribution moving forward.
