Amy ready for a
New Senior 1’s Coach for Tanunda Netball Club, Amy Hart is looking forward to her
new role and is hoping to have her team finish within the top four this year.
This season, Tanunda Netball Club
will welcome Amy Hart of Gawler East
as their new Senior 1’s coach.
Amy says that she is looking forward
to her new challenge and involvement
with the Barossa club, bringing with
her a vast array of experience.
Amy started coaching at just 14
years of age at the Elizabeth Netball
Courts and at age 17 began coaching
“From here I began coaching
interstate and regional squads in
Queensland,” she said.
“I eventually came back to SA and
became involved with another Barossa
Amy has also coached at the
State Regional Academy, was the
Assistant Coach for the Subway Cup
Reserves League and most recently,
last year coached the Inter 1’s for the
Growing up, Amy says that her
player inspiration could be attributed
to Michelle Dendekker and Jackie
Delanie, but attributes her coaching
inspiration to Senior Coach Lynn
Corbett who trained her in Queensland.
After a coaching career that spans
across 17 years, Amy decided to take on
the role of Senior 1’s coach for Tanunda
after speaking with the club.
“I decided to go for it this year,” she
“I’ve had a long coaching commitment
through many different clubs and at
different levels and this will be a new
challenge for me.
“I have had a lot of experience with
pre-elite under 17’s players and a new
role will be good.”
Amy believes that working with the
Tanunda Senior 1’s will be a personal
benefit to her coaching career.
“It will be great for my coaching
accreditation as I work to advance to
the next level,” she said.
“I am also looking forward to coming
to a club that has had quite a bit of
growth within the past few years.”
Amy says that she enjoys being a
good club person and that she likes to
“throw” herself into a club fully.
“I’ve had a wide range of experiences
and I’ve got a good ability to adapt to
new situations,” she said.
“I want the transition from previous
coach for the Senior 1’s, Maria Fraser
to myself to be as seamless as possible.
“I’ve got a willingness to work and
I am a dedicated club member with
whichever club I belong to.”
Amy says that the move to Tanunda
Netball Club came after the club she
was coaching for at the time lost its
Premier League status.
“I didn’t have the opportunity to
coach at the top level unfortunately,”
As a mother of a young child, Amy
also says that coaching at environments
such as ETSA Park was not a family
“Tanunda is a very family friendly
club and as a mother that works full
time I want to be able to bring my
family to the games because I don’t
like missing a Saturday with them,”
Amy is also looking forward to
working with the club at their brand
new court facilities and with new club
“Tanunda has been working really
hard over the past few years to get their
new courts up and running and it’s a
huge achievement for them,” she said.
“The improved courts will be great
for players and has brought about a real
sense of accomplishment for the club.
“The change of uniform is also a very
As far as training her new team goes,
Amy says that she’s hoping to continue
on from Maria’s work.
“Last year the Tanunda girls finished
just outside of the top four,” she said.
“I’m looking forward to continuing
and building on from Maria’s work and
aiming to get into a top four finish.”
The club has had several changes
during the past few months with Maria
Fraser stepping down from coaching
the Senior 1’s at the end of the season
to taking the role of club president.
Jo Buck will be vice president and
Debbie Miles will be continuing as
With the completion of four new
netball courts on the new site behind
the clubrooms and the introduction
of a new uniform for the senior,
intermediate and under 15’s teams,
the committee has been extremely busy.
Club secretary, Debbie Miles said
that overall the challenges have been
rewarding and the club is hoping the
2015 season will result in some great
results on court.
