Position: Student/ Aspiring Coach

Favourite Player: Katie McCabe
Mentor Comments/Mentee Development:
“Over the recent months, Kiera has been actively engaged in our Player Development Program sessions at one of our Welsh partner schools. Transitioning from a player in previous blocks to an aspiring coach in our current block, she has remarkably embraced this change and demonstrated impressive progress within a short period. Kiera has shown an eagerness to learn and a willingness to share her knowledge with younger players at her school.
I have enjoyed working alongside Kiera this half term and look forward to supporting her as she continues to develop in her coaching journey.”
