Stacey Rosman has been appointed as West Coast Fever’s new coach on a two-year deal.
Rosman has been an assistant under the outgoing Norma Plummer for the past three seasons and is a former captain of the Fever and the Perth Orioles.
Netball WA president Deane Pieters said an exhaustive international search has been completed prior to Rosman’s appointment.
Pieters said it was Rosman’s strong leadership skills, Fever First’ coaching philosophy, clear high performance vision, personal values, interpersonal skills, knowledge of the modern game and work ethic that netted her the top job.
The five-person selection panel included Australian Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander.
“Stacey’s professional conduct and preparation clearly demonstrated her qualities and commitment to the role and its demands, expected of a Head Coach in the ANZ Championship,” Pieters said.
“I will say we left no stone unturned in our commitment to conduct one of the most comprehensive and professional processes ever conducted by an ANZ Championship team to identify Stacey as our unanimous choice.”
Rosman will begin in the rule on June 30 but will remain as head coach of the Western Sting in the Australian Netball League until the end of the season.
