Stacey Rosman will lead West Coast Fever into the new National Netball League era, having re-signed as Head Coach for a further four seasons, through until the end of 2020.
The most successful coach in Fever history, Rosman says she is determined to lead the club to the ultimate prize.
“I’m thrilled to be on board for the next four seasons as I feel we have unfinished business as a team,” Rosman said.
“I came in at the beginning of last year with an ambition and a vision for this club but couldn’t have imagined we’d be in such a strong position this early in the plan.”
“We have established a model for sustained success, driven by incremental gains, and it is pleasing to have my confidence in our direction reaffirmed with this new deal.”
“I have every faith that we are on the path to success and have the tools necessary to deliver the ultimate prize, so I’m determined to realise that dream in the next four years.”
While Netball WA CEO Simon Taylor said the club was adamant from the outset that Rosman was the right person to lead the team.
“Stacey is not only an outstanding coach, she is a wonderful ambassador for our club,” Taylor said.
“Having been our inaugural ANZ Championship Captain, and now our Head Coach, few understand what drives this club better than Stacey.”
“Stacey has been at the forefront of our change in fortunes across the past two seasons, implementing a new set of standards from a High Performance perspective, and we are confident that she will continue to lead us towards the ultimate prize.”
Netball Australia continues to work closely with the clubs and Australian Netball Players’ Association on the players’ Collective Bargaining Agreement to deliver the best possible result for the players, clubs and the league. Further announcements around the new league will be made in due course.
