An anonymous guest post on my blog by a female coach about women and coaching in NZ. Well worth reading and discussing?

I think any generalisations of coaches skills based on whether they are male or female are pretty useless.  Generalising that male coaches do this, or female coaches are better at this is completely pointless.

Weird obsession in some quarters with getting men to be coached by women.  I don't understand it really, there's no great groundswell for men to get involved with coaching netball, it would be quite odd if there was.

There could well be though, if more men played netball and at higher levels, as women do with football? If men's netball teams were competing in National leagues, World Cups etc, etc, I'm sure there could be noises being made about men being coaches.

Not if you saw him/her it isn't. Age sixty plus, hot pants, red wig, panda eyes... you might see him around the capital if you're unlucky.

Got the new rack, still got the old balls. But it's only a matter of time before he loses them ( he said gleefully).

The First X1 football coach was fired by St Cuthberts' College, a $20,000--year private girls' school, after the incident. Ir was revealed on Thursday, a girl, believed to be 14 or 15, was down to her underwear and fishnet stockings, having shed items of clothing while holding a sign saying 'Toot for a Strip' on the side of the road.... etc etc.
