HAMILTON Kangaroos will launch pre-season training on Wednesday night under the watchful eye of coach Kelsey Lewis.
Lewis will lead the Roos again in 2021, giving the club stability at the top after the coronavirus pandemic wiped out the Hampden league senior netball competition this year.
Kangaroos netball co-ordinator Amanda Gibbons said former league best and fairest winner Amanda Douglas had relinquished co-coaching duties.
"Amanda has decided to step back due to having a baby a week ago," she said.
"Amanda will hopefully play, all things going well."
Gibbons said Lewis was settled in the role, having coached in 2019, and had a thorough understanding of the Roos' list.
"She works really well with the girls we've got and she's very junior focused as well which is quite nice," she said.
Hamilton hopes to have returning players commit at pre-season training on Wednesday night.
It is also eager to see Bec Arnold, who had signed on for 2020, represent the club for the first time.
"She was picked for (open grade) this year but due to COVID she couldn't get a season in," Gibbons said.
"So she's new to the club and she's come across from Naracoorte and she'd been over in Perth for a couple of years but due to work they'd made the move over to Hamilton this year."
Gibbons said Arnold was versatile but was eager to slot into wing defence.
