The Panthers are on the hunt for netball coaches for the 2018 season.
The Benalla All Blacks are looking to fill coaching roles in the A-grade, B-grade, B-reserve, C-grade, and under-15s netball sides for next year.
‘‘Our club endeavours to provide an inclusive and supportive environment for all involved. We pride ourselves on representing our community in a positive way on and off the court,’’ the Panthers’ ad in The Ensign read.
‘‘After a successful 2017 season with our under-15s netball team winning the premiership, we are looking for positive and encouraging people who would like to get involved in our club in the 2018 season.’’
The call for new coaches comes after the A-grade side this year slumped to finish 11th in the Ovens and King Netball League, with two wins in 18 matches.
In B-grade, the team finished last on the ladder, without recording a win all season.
The B-reserve side won one of its 18 matches, finishing 11th, while the C-graders also finished 11th, with one win.
The under-15 side went on to win the grand final, defeating Bright by five goals.
That side was coached by A-grade player Emma Sangster, who will be taking a side next year, although which side is unclear.
The Panthers ended this season with a points percentage of 50, the second-lowest in the league.
President Blake Goodwin said the club wanted to have as many options for coaches as possible.
‘‘We’ll be advertising right up until pre-season or until they’re filled. Hopefully then we’ll have a bit of a selection,’’ he said. ‘‘I think as long as we have good people around those roles then the results will come from that. As long as they’re good people, we’ll be happy to have them.’’
