ENJOYMENT is the key word on the lips of new Kolora-Noorat A grade coach Kym Goonan.
The 33-year-old said she was hoping to continue the work of departing mentor Jody Roth, who steps down due to family reasons, and to stick with the Power’s core values.
“It was fantastic to have Jody there last year and I worked alongside her with the reserves under her guidance to get her knowledge and I learnt a lot from her,” Goonan said.
“I would like to bring unity and obviously everyone plays better when they are a unified team, which I think the Power are well renowned for, and I’d like to carry that through.
“I like for everyone to be enjoying their netball and learning some things along the way and get a few wins on the board.”
Goonan, who hopes to take on an active player-coach role in 2019, said she didn’t think she would be taking on a senior leadership role when she began coaching at under 17 level.
“I started coaching a few years ago when Power offered it to me and before that I didn’t really think of myself as being a coach,” the defender said.
“I suppose I just progressed through the stages and going from reserves up to A grade just seemed like the natural progression.”
Goonan, who was a key player in the Power’s top grade side in 2018, said she was excited by the direction the club was heading in.
Kolora-Noorat finished eighth, with six wins and 10 losses last season.
