Sydney Scorpions are pleased to announce their 2017/18 STING coaching team that will participate in our upcoming STING Junior Development Program. Continuing on from last season’s success the program aims to up-skill and develop players and coaches both within Scorpions regional teams and additionally at local affiliate level, with this newly acquired knowledge being taken back to local clubs at the grass roots level.
