Senior Coaching Announcement

Dear Jets Family,

The Jets are very pleased to announced the appointment of Kristen Woods and Liz Quinn as co-coaches of the Gungahlin Jets senior Women’s team for season 2018.

Kristen brings a range of experience as a player and coach, having played many years of club and representative football in Canberra before moving into the coaching arena. Kristen is a former Senior Women’s coach at the Jets and it’s great to have her back in this role.

Liz has also played a lot of club and representative football and recently moved into coaching as an assistant at the Jets and the Navy women’s team.

Both women are passionate about the Jets women’s program and are keen to continue to build on the great legacy that has been created in this team.

I wish to thank Julian Clarkson and his support team for their efforts over the past few seasons. Such an amazing result over the last two seasons, making two Grand Finals and winning the 2016 Premiership. Julians leadership was also recognised in the 2017 season, winning the Womens Coach of the Year. Thank you Jules.

The Jets have selected coaches for the other Senior roles which will be announced in the very near future once we clear a few administrative hurdles, but the future is bright!

We have made significant steps forward since the end of the season in terms of recruitment, future planning and program development that will see marked improvement in our structure and culture.
