RACV offers chance to be coached by the best

Grassroots netball coaches will have a chance to win a professional coaching session from some of Australia’s top netball talent, as part of RACV and Netball Victoria’s new Coaches in the Field program.

Two Netball Victoria-affiliated clubs or associations, one from metropolitan Melbourne and one from regional Victoria, will win coaching sessions. To enter the RACV Coaches in the Field competition, they must submit 100 words or less explaining why their organisation would benefit from a professional coaching session.

The competition will run from 1 April until 30 June, and every submission will be entered into a fortnightly draw to win a $100 RACV gift card. To enter, click here.

As part of the Coaches in the Field program, RACV will also sponsor a Netball Victoria Community Award – the RACV Outstanding Contribution to Coaching Award. The winner will receive a $1000 RACV gift card, and their club or association will also receive $2000 at the annual awards ceremony in October.

Netball Victoria’s Chief Executive Officer, Rosie King, said the “money can’t buy” coaching session was a great opportunity.

“Netball Victoria’s renowned coaching pathway includes the likes of head Melbourne Vixens coach Simone McKinnis OAM, and assistant coaches Di Honey and Sharelle McMahon, who are also former Australian Diamonds representatives.

“These women are some of the best netball talents our country has ever seen and now respected coaches. The amount a club or association coach would learn from a coaching session with any one of them would be absolutely invaluable,” said King.

RACV Managing Director and CEO Neil Taylor said RACV was pleased to continue its six-year partnership with Netball Victoria in support of local communities.

“This partnership will provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to be coached by the best of the best.”
