Kari Jones Appointed as Head Coach of NZBLAX

It is with great pleasure that the NZWLA Executive can confirm that Kari Jones has been appointed as Head Coach of the 2017 World Cup NZBLAX Team.

Kari’s passion, focus and dedication to the sport and her strategic vision for the future of women’s lacrosse were some of the key deciding factors for the panel.

There were over 20 applications for the role of Head Coach with several from US Division 1 Coaches. After 3 weeks of interviews, consultation and requesting 7 of the applicants to put forward their World Cup Plan, Kari’s abilities as a coach shone through and it was a unanimous decision by the panel to offer her the role.

We look forward to working with Kari as she now puts together her Management Team and her plan for 2017 campaign. Congratulations.
