Congratulations to the successful Coaches, wishing you all the success for the 2016 State Championships & 2017 WABL season, having a structure with player selections and grading system will enable a great foundation on the movement forward for the East Perth Eagles. This year there are some gaps in some age divisions which will be assessed following WABL tryouts. There is also the introduction of an U16-3 age division, which are subject to grading and tryouts in the New Year.
This year signals a new approach to both the early appointment of coaching positions as well as a comprehensive post season development program. The Executive Committee will also be actively reviewing each age group to ensure we hit the court in the New Year without any hesitations. We are looking for coaches that will work in a more collegial approach particularly with our new development programs. We will have a get together to discuss this as a group in the New Year.
Head Coach Appointees are reminded that the further appointment of assistant coaches and team managers needs to be approved in consultation with the Executive Committee, this will save any embarrassing situations by acting too quickly.
For the purposes of clarity, the emerging State Championships head coach will be the highest coach awarded for each age group. i.e. 16(1) Coach will be the Head Coach of U15 this applies to all age groups.
We would like to formally thank the outgoing Coaches for their respective efforts in the 2016 season, it’s important to recognise their efforts that has enabled the successful growth of the Club. Both success and growth would not be possible if it wasn’t for the efforts of Coaches as the various levels. Likewise, we would like to pass on our thanks to all of the applications for Coaches, whilst difficult to change or have a pool of applicants it’s always a hard task to select a singular from multiples. Again thank you one and all.
