Camilla Buchanan Latest Addition to Mavericks Coaching Line-up

11th August 2016

Mavericks Netball are delighted to announce that long-time Mavericks team member Camilla Buchanan will be returning to the club in her inaugural Superleague coaching appointment as Assistant Coach, working alongside Director of Netball Robyn Broughton.  Camilla was a playing member of Mavericks for eight seasons winning the SuperLeague in 2011. The Mavericks coaching team will be rounded out with a second Assistant Coach to be announced next week.

Franchise Director, Gloria Keech remarked “Camilla was a hard-working, intelligent, dedicated and competitive mid-courter and I am confident she will bring all those attributes to her coaching at Mavericks. She has a real passion for the Club and we are excited that she has agreed to join our talented coaching team.” 

Having joined Mavericks as a young athlete in 2008, Camilla spent eight seasons as a playing member of the club and felt the time was right to transition from senior player to coach.

Camilla had this to say about her appointment: “I am Mavericks through and through – after eight seasons, one championship and two finals, I am excited to make the transition from player to coach.  During my time at Mavericks I’ve been lucky enough to play under some of the best coaches and whilst you never really want to hang up your trainers, now seems like the perfect time to make this move.  The opportunity to work with Robyn makes this all the sweeter - she has some serious credentials and I am blessed to be given the opportunity to work with her at the club that I love.”

Camilla continued: “I couldn't be more excited to work with players that I've been side by side with and also those that are coming up through the ranks.  The anticipation for this season has already caused some sleepless nights and I cannot wait to get going.  One of the best parts will be getting back in front of our home ground – we have the best and most dedicated fans in the league.”

The Mavericks coaching line-up is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in Superleague history – keep your eyes on our social channels for news of our final coaching appointment…
