Southby Reappointed FAST5 Ferns Coach

Southby Reappointed FAST5 Ferns Coach

11 August 2014

Netball New Zealand is pleased to announce the reappointment of Janine Southby as FAST5 Ferns coach for the 2014 FAST5 Netball World Series in November.

Southby’s recent coaching roles have been at the helm of the Southern Steel in the ANZ Championship where the team finished fifth and the New Zealand Under 21 team which won gold at the World Youth Netball Championships in Scotland last year.

NNZ Chief Executive Hilary Poole said this is another great opportunity for Southby to coach on the world stage.

“Janine is part of Netball New Zealand’s High Performance Coaching Programme and her re-appointment as FAST5 Ferns coach is well deserved.”

“The FAST5 Netball World Series is a very special event on our calendar and I know Janine will do her very best to secure the winning formula again with the Ferns,” Poole said.

Southby says she’s delighted to be given another opportunity to coach the FAST5 Ferns.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience last year so I had no hesitation in putting up my hand for another go,” she said.

“It’s a whirlwind event and it’ll be a fun way for the girls to end their year after a really busy international season.”

Six teams will compete for the FAST5 title with England, South Africa, Australia, Malawi and Jamaica competing alongside the FAST5 Ferns.

The FAST5 Netball World Championship is back at Auckland’s Vector Arena over the weekend of November 8-9. For ticketing information, please visit www.mynetball.co.nz
