Casey Hockey Club is proud to appoint Tina Horwood as our new senior women’s coach.
Our best wishes are with Jim Galanos, who has had to stand down, due to a personal issue. We are thankful for the work Jim has put in at the beginning of the season and hope to welcome him back to club when he is in a position to do so.
Tina is a bright and bubbly figure around the club who began playing hockey in 1983 as a seven year old.
An accomplished player in South Australia through her youth, Tina moved to the ACT for university, coaching the U18s at Tuggeranong Valley Hockey club.
She spent four years as women’s coordinator at Tuggeranong Valley, while playing first and second grade.
After taking almost a decade off to have children, Tina came back to the sport last year, becoming a strong addition to our women’s unit.
As an assistant to Jim, she has had a crash course in coaching andwe are very pleased that she has stepped up to the plate in what is a difficult time as we prepare to move into the COVID-19 affected season. Please give Tina a warm Casey welcome to the head coaching role.
