Coaching is a thoroughly rewarding endeavour. People undertake it for numerous reasons such as, to give back to their club/school, to help players develop as netballers and people, for their own self-development/achievement, and for the love of our skilled and exciting game!

There are opportunities to coach at all levels in Wakatipu. These range from Year 1 right through to representative teams.

Wakatipu Netball, Netball South and Netball New Zealand recognise the importance of having coaches that feel confident. The following structures are present to enable your confidence, Please reach out to any one of our committee members or email with any questions or support you may need.
