Congratulations Erika Alabado - 2018 recipient of the Sian Clancy Coaching Award.
Erika has not only developed as a coach with Netball Alberta but also as a youth player and now a key member of the Grizzlies Youth Development Squad.
Starting as a youth player she has gone on to impart her knowledge and love for the game to the Junior members of our Association. Regularly coaching our Junior B’s on a Sunday evening at league and she recently qualified as a Level I coach which will give her the opportunity to move forward as a leader and role model.
This is no small feat as she is now also juggling studies at the Uof C as well as a part time job and her coaching commitments. Always one of the first to volunteer to help out with events outside of the usual Netballing Calendar and when asked if she would be a champion for the University program there was no hesitation.
As part of the Youth Development Squad, as a player she is always attentive and gives 100% both in training and during league games and is a delight to coach. I am sure the players that she coaches would have no other coach guiding them on their pathway into Netball.
Netball Alberta is pleased to recognized Erika as the 2018 Sian Clancy Coaching Award recipient.
