Netball Northern Zone are pleased to announce the reappointment of Ripeka Pirie as Head Coach of the Northern Marvels for the 2020 season.
The experience Ripeka has gained in the past three years as a BEKO coach placed her in a strong position amongst a tough pool of applicants.
Ripeka credits her reappointment to a strong support system, a willingness to learn and improve, and a comfort with adaptability.
The BEKO environment changes frequently and I have learnt to anticipate this and plan for the variety of events BEKO can throw at you.
Having this mindset and preparing well has a flow on effect, and the player’s become more adaptable and resilient.
I wish to thank my family, friends and the many generous people I have worked with, for their support.
