We are excited to announce that Te Aroha Keenan has been appointed as the Director of Netball at St Peter’s.
Te Aroha is a former Silver Fern and New Zealand coach with experience at all levels. For the past four seasons, she has been based in the United Kingdom coaching age group, British University, and Superleague teams.
Te Aroha’s coaching experience saw her as Assistant Coach of the Silver Ferns and coach of the Cook Islands National team at the 1999 Netball World Championships. She also coached at two World Youth Championships with the New Zealand U21 Team, which went on to achieve a silver medal in 1996 and gold at the 2005 World Youth Netball Championships. She went on to coach the Mystics in the ANZ Championships before heading to the UK.
Te Aroha was Deputy Principal at Mt Albert Grammar School in Auckland for 13 years where she developed the Netball Academies in the junior school. At Secondary School level, Te Aroha has coached teams to sixteen Upper North Island Secondary School (UNISS) titles and ten NZSS titles through her time coaching at Auckland Girls Grammar and Mt Albert Grammar.
Te Aroha was awarded New Zealand coach of the year in 2015. This was the top coaching award across all levels including the Silver Ferns.
There has been a wealth of netball talent that has come through her coaching; Maria Tutaia, Sheryl Clarke, Maia Wilson, Holly Fowler, Jamie-Lee Price, Erikana Pedersen who have gone on to make NZ/Australian Netball Teams or Squads.
Returning from the UK this month, Te Aroha will start her role at St Peter’s on the 19 August and will be leading the Netball Academy. She is keen to settle back in New Zealand to be closer to family and is looking forward to a new challenge at St Peter’s.
“I am excited to return to NZ and once again join Principal Dale Burden at St Peter’s," she says." My focus will be looking at continuing the development of the academy programme and raising the profile and success of netball at the school, Waikato and in NZ.”
Te Aroha will support the current coaches and players and will take up the reigns as Head Coach of the Premier Netball team from 2020.
Her expertise, experience, and passion for netball will be fantastic for our young developing netballers and will also provide pathways for all players, including those with high-performance goals.
