The Northern Zone are delighted to announce Anna Harrison as a specialist coach for the Northern Marvels in 2019.
Anna says when the opportunity came up for her to be involved as a specialist coach at the BEKO level, it was an easy decision. “This is a great opportunity for me to stay involved in the sport and the Zone I have represented for the last 12 years, and I love working with young athletes. I have been involved in high performance sport for the past 17 years, and during that time I have witnessed many changes and demands in netball. My experience with both netball and volleyball on the world stage has taught me a lot about the challenges and focus needed to be a professional athlete. I hope I can draw on that experience and share what I have learnt with the zone players”.
Anna has previously coached at a secondary school level. Northern Mystics and the Netball Northern Zone are excited to be able to support Anna’s transition from playing to coaching, and introducing Anna at this level is a perfect fit.
Netball Northern Zone CEO, Nicole Spratt says “Keeping our elite athletes involved in the Zone and netball is valuable to the sport. Please join us in congratulating Anna on her appointment.”
The Northern Marvels first game of the 2019 BEKO League takes place on Saturday 2nd March against the Southern Blast at The Trusts Arena, centre pass 2.10pm.
