With the Senior Women's Team Ireland trials this Sunday in Portadown, now is the perfect time to introduce the staff. It is also not too late to sign up to the trials at the following link, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdInnr99UdPKMDk6pTEy1vZNSDXqKrmNtHeo9clMCMdh2ZP3w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR2CH4EoaqCvchIcEFnjqtuPX-JnzuVBazHFbbyMU3N0kwDDUZDHWeS_tDo.
Head Coach - Vytautas Lukosevicius
Vytautas has been involved with Ladies hockey in Ireland for a lot of years now and is eager to help guide this team into the World Championships next summer. Vytautas's track record speaks for itself when it comes to coaching female teams and we are sure it will continue with this programme. Vytautas has plenty of coaching experience at the international level, including coaching the Senior Men at the 2013 IIHF qualifiers.
Assistant Coach - Raimonds Kaprinskis
Raimonds will work closely with Vytautas to ensure our ladies are prepared for their very first appearance in World Skate World Championships in Colombia next summer. Last season Raimonds was an assistant coach with our U14 programme that went to Sparta Cup, he will be looking to take that experience into his new role.
Team Manager - Sarah Barrett
Our Female Development Officer, Sarah will be making sure all players are well prepared and looked after through the programme. Sarah will bring her strong desire and organisational skills to ensure every aspect is considered and taken care of, while looking to bring in as much sponsorship as possible to minimise the costs to the players.
We wish all the staff the best of success with the trial this weekend and throughout the year in the build up for Colombia 2020.
