Lee-Anne Cummins and Kirsty Leonard-Down.


In a coup for the 2019 state teams, Lee-Anne Cummins and Kirsty Leonard-Down will return as head coach of the 17Us and 19Us, respectively.

2019 will be the sixth year Cummins has been the 17U head coach. In April this year the team celebrated a ‘three-peat’, winning a third consecutive gold medal at the National Netball Championships, which was held in April in Adelaide.

Cummins will be supported by assistant coach Peta Maher, team manager Sharon Kasteliz and physiotherapist Aaron Beck.

Leonard-Down steps into her fourth year as head coach for the 19Us, having coached the team to a silver medal at this year’s National Netball Championships.

Leonard-Down will be supported by assistant coach Amanda Shattock, team manager Jo Whelan and physiotherapist Christopher Williams.

The 2019 National Netball Championships will be held in Brisbane from Wednesday 10 April – Tuesday 16 April.
