Caulfield & District Netball Association, Tue May 15, 2018 3:50PM

We would like to extend an invitation to all of the coaches within our association to attend our first ever Coaches Forum.

There is always a call for coaches to improve their knowledge, their repertoire, their experience and also to have burning questions asked or problems solved. We think that facilitating all of these coaches in the one room, getting to know each other and bouncing ideas off each other is a great step forward in CDNA assisting with all of these needs and helping with coach development. But, on this night, we are also giving you unlimited access to two extremely experienced and knowledgeable coach/mentors for the night, in the hope that you get even more help, knowledge and motivation moving forward. These two will be answering questions, giving advice, helping with drills & skills, discussing coaching pathways and sharing all of their valuable knowledge with you.

Robyne Dawson is a Netball Victoria Coach Educator and Talent Identification Program selector. She is an advanced level coach who has coached in Netball Victoria's Academy program, the Victorian State Team program, Melbourne Phoenix, Victorian Fury (Australian Netball League) and also the Victorian Netball League. We're very lucky to have someone of Robyne's calibre for the evening.


Tim Marshall, who is a CDNA Umpire Coach and Supervisor, also works with Netball Victoria as an A grade umpire within the Netball Australia Umpiring Emerging Talent Squad (reserve umpiring for Vixens games!) and is an Umpire Coach and Educator. He has also represented his state playing netball himself on many different occasions, so also has a wealth of information and knowledge to share with you.


Penny Forrest will be there on the night too if anybody needs any assistance with the annoying but necessary administrative side of coaching things. She too is a coach.

We would love to see as many coaches as possible there (no matter how young, old, experienced or brand new the more the merrier!) and we look forward to answering as many questions as we can. To help move things along quickly on the night, we would like to ask all coaches to submit their questions beforehand, so we can ensure we are prepared with the answers straight away. We promise to answer as many questions on the night as possible but will also ensure all questions are answered via email if left over.
Here is the form we would like you all to fill out for us beforehand - with your questions and also to confirm your attendance for us:
