OUR COACHES

Our coaches are coaches simply because they love netball.

LOUISE NEILSON

Level 2 Coach

Lou volunteered as a coach 10 years ago to help out her eldest daughter's netball club. Qualifying as a level 2 coach five years ago, she couldn't resist joining Louise Hastie in starting the Sidmouth club in East Devon in 2016. Having played sport to an international level, Lou can be 'slightly' competitive and is loving seeing the club grow and the girls enjoying their netball and improving every season.

LOUISE HASTIE

Level 2 Coach

Having completed her Level 2 coaching in 2016, Lou trains across all our teams and loves seeing the players progress and improve. She plays for Sidmouth Toucans as a defender, believing that Wing Defence is the best position on the court down to her netball hero being Jade Clarke. Lou strongly advocates team sports for both children and adults as a way to build team spirit and competitive success and has a personal goal to see Sidmouth Netball Club get to 100 junior members!

SANDRA PARNELL

Level 2 Coach

Sandra has been involved in netball coaching for around 15 years now and has always loved coaching mixed ability junior players.  Through that time she's supported both the Annual Youth Games and the England Netball Development Program and is keen to continue sharing her love of the game with the next generation, here in Sidmouth.
