November 4, 2019

Welcome back to newly appointed Opens Head Coach Ali Tucker and Opens Head Coach/Technical Director Sharyn Hill. We are very lucky to have these big names back with the UTS Sparks for the 2020 NSW Premier League season. These two are no strangers to the netball court not only with their immense coaching experience but also their playing experience.

Ali Tucker took to the court as a defender in Commonwealth Bank trophy with the Sydney Sandpipers as well as being selected as an Australian Diamonds squad member. Ali’s elite coaching accreditation has her heavily involved in the current Netball NSW State program as the U19s assistant coach.

With a re-structure for our 2020 season; Sharyn Hill is now our Technical Director and Opens Head Coach.

Sharyn will be leading our coaching team with years of experience behind her. A few of her coaching accolades include coaching the U21s Singapore team, multiple years as a state coach for ACT Netball and co-coaching the ANL Canberra Giants side in 2017/18. Sharyn also represented the Sydney Cenovis in Mobile Super League which evolved into the Commonwealth Bank trophy where she represented the Sydney Swifts playing against her coaching partner Ali Tucker.

Our players are lucky to be coached by 2 veterans of the sport not only assisting our players in their development on the court but their development as professional athletes too.
