ClubFit is in February from 6.45pm at Jubilee Oval, Glebe on Wednesdays. These sessions are suitable for ALL fitness levels and we encourage attendance to increase match readiness. Its also a great opportunity for all the girls to train together.
Who were the 2015 Coaches?
2016 coaches still to be confirmed
Glebe 1 : Matthew Wark
Matt, a former NSW representative, coached the girls to a 2015 Premiership in ML2, a fantastic achievement! Matt also worked with Martin Bishop in 2012 to secure Glebe's 1st side the Minor Premiership. He has coached several teams previously and his knowledge of the game has proved to be a huge strength to this team. He provides insights that have helped individuals reach their potential and strive to be better hockey players.
Glebe 2 : Martin Bishop
Martin has been with Glebe since 2009 and has worked with the 1st and 2nd grade girls to secure a Grand Final appearance, Minor Premiership and Major Premiership/ Grand Final win for 2nd grade in 2013. He is a dedicated coach and all-round Club man. He's taken the 2nd grade girls up a grade and kept the team hugely competitive in a grade above, which is a testiment to his work ethic and ability to improve the girls teamwork and skill level.
Glebe 3 : Charlie Brown
Charlie has extensive experience as a coach of women's hockey after an illustrious career with Glebe. He coached the Glebe 2 side in 2012 and took the girls to the premiership, winning the ML4 competition. In 2015, Charlie's team won the Minor Premiership but were unfortunate to go down in extra time in the final. We look forward to working with Charie again this year. He demands committment from his players and gets results. It should be a wonderful season for Glebe 3.
Glebe 4 & 5: Andrew Goodrich (Googa)
After narrowly missing out on a top 4 spot in 2015, Googa is back to secure semi-final glory with his relatively new team. Googa is determined to take this team to success in 2016 and is hoping the girls will return with more drive and enthusiasm to make it happen. Googa has been involved with the Women's Club for several years and has contributed to the individual improvement of many girls, watching them move up the grades, improve thier skills and do some fantastic things for this great Club.
