THE South Coast Blaze, the region's only Netball NSW Premier League franchise, has announced the re-signing of coaches Marji Parr (open's) and Regan Tweddle (under 23s) for the 2021 season.
This comes on the back of the club's impressive showing during their inaugural campaigns on-court - highlighted by the under 23s side semi-final showdown with North Shore United on Wednesday.
"Marji and Regan have both done a wonderful job coaching our open's and under 23s teams in our inaugural year and we are thrilled to welcome them back for a second season," Chair of South Coast Blaze Karina Franke said.
"They bring exceptional expertise as head coaches and players have a great opportunity to learn from them by joining South Coast Blaze."
Coinciding with this news, the Blaze has announced player applications for next year's teams are now open.
"We invite all talented players over 16 years old on the South Coast and surrounding regions to now submit applications to be part of our open's and under 23s teams in 2021," Franke said.
"We have established a strong franchise in our inaugural year and in 2021 we will be continuing to build on that.
"So we are looking for players who are competitive, committed to support and grow our strong Blaze culture, focused on team goals, dedicated to conditioning and can be a team player both on and off the court."
