Women’s Super League Coach Announcement 2018

Northern Stars is proud to announce the coaching group for our Women’s Super League squad for the 2018 WAVL season. Mark Van Winsen continues as head coach of the womens program and also the Super League 1 women’s coach. Under Van Winsen in 2017 the team achieved many of its goals and looks set for a strong push to the finals in 2018. Van Winsen’s coaching and playing prowess needs no introduction and he will be a strong leader for a developing group of players. Ryan Penno has been selected as the Super League 2 coach for this season. 2017 was his first year as a coach and an exceptional one at that, taking out our 2017 coach of the year after doing a stellar job of guiding his SL3 women’s team into the finals. Lachlan Shakeshaft is the SL3 women’s coach for the 2018 season after coaching an open division team in 2017. Shakeshaft has an impressive resume, having coached at Perth Modern in Junior League, WAVL and school tournaments for several years. His eye for technique and analysis of the game will help push the SL3 players in their pursuit of another finals appearance

Northern Stars would like to thank all applicants for their expressions of interest and will soon be announcing our Super League Reserve and PVL coach appointments
