2018 Junior Regional Coaches

Sydney Scorpions are pleased to announce their 2018 Junior Regional coaching appointments. Continuing on from last season’s success, our STING Junior Development Program will be utilised aiming to up-skill and develop players and coaches. Once again our Junior Elite Camp will act as our final section trial for our 14/16’s Junior Regional teams and this will take place on 3-4 March, 2018 at Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen. This camp will also include a “Coach the Coaches” component where leading NSW & Australian coaches will be knowledge sharing with affiliates who will be requested to nominate coaches from their local clubs to participate.  To provide the best support for our coaches we have NSW and Australian coaches Dave Nolan as our Boys Team Leader and Barry Gibson as our Girls Team Leader.  Michael Donaghy will continue in his Sports Scientist role providing the latest preparation and recovery techniques for our teams.  Stuart Geros is once again our Scorpions Tour Leader with our Player Mentors to be appointed in coming months, along with Team Managers.  NSWTA will be announcing the venue for the 2018 Junior Regionals in coming weeks.  Congratulations to all appointments.
