Jenny Brazel is the Netball Fiji new head coach.

The former assistant coach for the Queensland Firebirds replaces fellow Australian Vicki Wilson.

And Brazel was yesterday grateful to be part of Fiji netball family.

Brazel said: ‘It is truly an honor and a privilege to be named as the new Netball Fiji Head Coach and I am very excited to see where we can take the national programme and also the development of players and coaches right across this beautiful country.’

Brazel was part of the successful Firebirds coaching team for both the ANZ Championship and Suncorp Super Netball from 2015-2019 and was responsible for the Firebirds attacking performance.

Netball Fiji president RubyAnn Sorovaki said that in Jenny’s current position with Netball Queensland and with Netball Australia she has solid experience in all areas of high performance.

“In her coaching work she has developed and implemented successful athlete centered programmes, building both a culture of performance and growth progression,” Sorovaki said

“This is a major area of interest for Netball Fiji, given our aims to develop player and coaching pathways, improve our competition structure, and build on developing the holistic athlete to ultimately improve our current world ranking.”

“We are excited about Jenny joining our Fiji Netball family soon and we look forward to supporting her coaching plans and the alignment she will bring to our overall strategic objectives both on and off the courts.”

“With her wealth of knowledge in high performance coaching and as a specialist/development coach for Netball Australia’s under age squads we know Jenny will make a significant contribution to our athletes, our teams and our programmes,” Sorovaki added.

Brazel said: “When I look at Fiji, I see tremendous young players with so much promising netball talent, leading to a wonderful opportunity to develop and implement a highly successful world class programme for all.”

She added that she is also extremely grateful for the support of her own family and friends to pursue her netball coaching and she is looking forward to working with and becoming a part of the Netball Fiji family.
