DETERMINED: Marnie Lehmann will be making her senior netball coaching debut in the 2017 season.

FIRST-TIME senior coach Marnie Lehmann has taken on the A Grade leadership role, with Ash Brooks her assistant. 

The side includes many of its faces from the 2016 season but will also invite new players to the mix. 

Lehmann expects the side to be an all-round fit and technical outfit. 

She said one goal would be to keep the side improving year-round. 

The Tigers youth sector has an impressive record of graduate players that have now moved onto senior netball and Lehmann hopes this system can continue. 

“They are the life of the club and my goodness they have some fantastic skill between them that will surely come in handy,” she said. 

The side will be hoping to improve dramatically this season and Lehmann expects that from all senior players at Pimpinio.

Lehmann looks forward to the season. 

“I am most excited to be coaching as it is all new and I can’t wait for the season to kick off so I can put it all into play,” she said.

Lehmann has put individual and team goals in place to keep players on their toes to push them to reach. 

“We would like to give all the sides that gave us a run for our money last season a red hot crack.”

How will your style be changing this year?

As this is my first year as a senior netball coach I will be taking as much criticism from all the girl and taking it on board.

I want to show the girls, no matter who you are or how old you are everyone's opinion matters.

We are all in this together as it is a team sport and I expect the girls to really gel and show we are a strong side and work well together.

Why so?

This is what Pimpinio strive to be, a strong, bonded, well knit club.

As a senior netball coach I want my side to show that we can do that.

What players will be taking on different roles in the side this season?

I am looking at everyone as a blank canvas.
