Performance Pathways Manager Appointed


It is with great pleasure that Netball Queensland welcomes Tracey Fear to the team. Tracey has been appointed to the newly created role of Performance Pathways Manager, which is part of the Performance and Competitions department. Tracey will oversee the Emerging Talent Program, the Elite Development Program and the State Underage system.


Tracey brings a wealth of playing, coaching and management expertise to the role.  A World Cup winning player during her 69 Tests for the Silver Ferns, she then moved into Coaching, leading the New Zealand A and 21/U teams before taking on the Netball New Zealand Director of High Performance Role. Tracey held this position for 10 years, aligning with New Zealand’s most successful decade of on court performance.  Following a move to Australia, she headed up the High Performance unit at Netball New South Wales in 2013 and 2014.


Netball Queensland General Manager – Performance and Competitions, Richard McInnes is delighted to have Tracey join the team. “Tracey brings to Netball Queensland a unique skill set and range of experience to complement our excellent staff group and I believe her input will allow us to take our Pathway programs to another level”.


Tracey joins Charlie Griffiths, who was appointed Performance Competitions Coordinator in November 2017, joining Netball Queensland from Brisbane Metropolitan Touch Association, where he managed the range of competitions delivered across Brisbane.  Charlie will manage the Queensland State Netball League (QSNL), Queensland Premier League (QPL), the 16/U State Titles and play a significant role in the State Age Championships.
