Sue Innes – Contribution to Coaching 2018

In 2018 Sue held a number of coaching roles including head coach Canterbury U21 Women (National Tournament winners), co-coach Canterbury NHL Women and co-coach St Andrew’s College 1st XI.

Sue is a continuous learner and takes up a number of development opportunities and is open to talking to other coaches and sharing ideas. In 2018 she was part of the Canterbury Regional Performance coaching group. She is passionate about developing emerging talent and supporting athletes as they make the step-up from school/youth hockey into the adult performance space. Sue has developed a strong understanding of the game through over 30 years experience playing and coaching. Her background in teaching has helped her develop effective communication skills, she is very approachable in one-on-one conversations and confident in small group as well as larger group situations.

Sue has been an active and supportive member of Harewood Hockey Club and we are extraordinarily proud of this national Award for her ongoing contribution to our sport across many levels.
