The club is pleased to announce the Div 1 coaches for 2013. They are Stephen Christensen and Andy McIntosh for the men, and Diana Te Awa for the women.
Steve is a former Manawatu and NZ Indoor hockey rep and has been with the club since 1998, the last few years after stepping down from the Premier team with the Div 1 men. Steve has also previously coached the Div 1 women through a very successful period and no doubt will continue this record with the men.
Di Te Awa needs little introduction, being a former NZ Blacksticks captain and current NZ selector. Di is looking forward to putting back into the club after a few years away . Don’t be surprised to see either coach with their sticks at the ready whilst in the dugout!
The coach or coaches for the premier men's side will be announced shortly. The premier women are again fortunate to have the combined services of former Olympic Gold Medallist John Christensen and former NZ Men's coach Murray Connor.
