Well where to start.
We’ve got familiar faces, new friends and even a former MX player rounding out an exciting group of coaches for 2019.
Ollie and Conor are still around, although with Conor in Auckland his visits will be short but sweet. Ollie will remain at the helm pulling most of the strings. ANZ and AIG will keep them both busy when they’re not championing MX.
Daan, well most of you know Daan already. Back after some time away from MX, Daan joins us for a handful of weekly sessions and will be leading a lot of our work in schools. Daan’s our hockey sensei and a great sounding board for any of our athletes.
The two up and comers, Lochie and Estelle will continue their great work, mainly in the junior space. In other exciting news, Lochie has moved into a new flat so be sure to ask him about his choice of interiors and the natural light in the living room. Estelle could well feature for the Blacksticks soon but don’t worry, her MX duties will always take priority.
And last but by no means least, Georgie joins us after coming through the MX programme as player. She’s a great addition to the team and we’re looking forward to having her involved. Georgie will embark on her tertiary education at Victoria University and will experience the joys of hall life.
We’ll be sure to introduce everyone in more detail in the coming weeks but for now, a good chance to get introductions out of the way. Be sure to say hello to any of us whether at the turf or not, we’re always up for yarn.
Bring on 2019!
