Head Coach - Di Honey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Di Honey is a former Australian netballer and a member of the Melbourne Vixens coaching staff from 2012 – 2018.

With 17 caps for Australia, Honey, who has great experience in developing athletes to perform at the highest level, said the Victorian Fury and Deakin University Australian Netball League (ANL) – Suncorp Super Netball’s feeder competition – is important for athlete development through the pathway.

“The ANL teaches the athletes how to train at that elite level and gives them exposure to Suncorp Super Netball coaches that may be watching them when they’re playing across the country,” Honey said.

“Working closely with Simone (McKinnis) across the two programs, we’ll be aiming to develop the Vixens training partners and Fury athletes and make sure they are progressing nicely.

“At the end of the day, we will be trying to develop future Vixens and Diamonds players.”

Eloise Southby is a former goaler, who played for the Melbourne Phoenix from 1997 – 2005 and played 34 tests for Australia is thrilled to be joining the ANL system.

“The ANL is super important because it’s developing our next generation of superstars, not only for Suncorp Super Netball, but also for the Australian Diamonds,” Southby said.

“I think preparation and understanding what it takes to play at the elite level is key to development, and with Di as head coach and myself with that experience, we’ll be able to share our knowledge.“

Apprentice Coach - Jess Whitfort

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jess Whitfort coaches the Peninsula Waves’ Championship team in the Bupa VNL.

Returning for her second season as apprentice coach, Whitford explained the significance of the ANL environment in the high-performance pathway.

“In Victoria, the Fury program is a bridging year for the girls between the VNL and Suncorp Super Netball,” Whitfort said.

“They get immersed in a high-performance program and really learn what it is to be elite and get exposure to be seen by all the Suncorp Super Netball coaches.”
