Tactix retain coaches

4:47 pm on 16 July 2010

The Canterbury Tactix have retained head coach Helen Mahon-Stroud and assistant coach Julie Seymour for next season's trans-Tasman netball championship.

There'll be a new structure though with the addition of three assistants: one specialist in shooting, another in defence and a coaching mentor.

The Tactix finished last this year, winning only one game, but chairman Kevin Eder says Mahon-Stroud and Seymour have the players' confidence and both are very keen to continue.

Mahon-Stroud says she and Seymour are excited about the investment being put into coaching.

She says they're both relatively young in their professional development as coaches and know they're not experts on every aspect of the game.
