Luke Curran has joined the Coorparoo Kings’ Women’s as Head of Coaching, after ten years of establishing and developing the Hyundai Brisbane Lions Academy. Whilst he will recognise many familiar faces around the club, he’s keen to bring his knowledge and expertise to the existing program to ensure higher performance and success.
Existing coaches of Coorparoo Kings Women’s squad are keen to continue next season, still feeling the hunger for the premiership, despite winning the Development League premiership this year in a thrilling grand final.
Sam Haddad, Coorparoo Senior club President, said “This is a really exciting opportunity to draw on Luke’s expertise and build on our current program. We’re always looking at ways to improve and having Luke’s contribution will bring a real blast to next season.”
Players who’ve participated in the Lions’ Academy are feeling in safe hands with Luke coming on board. Chelsea Chesterfield, a current Academy player, said “After being around Luke in Academy the past few years, I know he is a great attribute to have at our club. I’m excited to see what he can bring to Coorparoo with his experience, coaching, and organisational side of things! I also love his motivational quotes and videos!”
Already those motivational videos have been aired and had their impact. Coorparoo is certainly looking forward to the 2021 season with pre-season training Tuesdays and Thursdays.
