Miha Brown
Under 16A Rep Coach

Miha has had at least 22 yrs experience with netball, as either a player or coach. He played his first game at age 14, playing indoor netball. Netball is in the blood so it was only normal for me to be around the courts.  His Saturday mornings were rugby then all afternoon was spent at the netball courts with his Mum.

He has played Representative Netball, Coached High school teams, Adult premier teams and also Representative teams.

Miha has a beautiful wife and two very delightful Daughters aged 7 and 4, who both are into a multitude of Sports.

Miha's philosophy is simple “The key to being a winner has 3 elements, Culture, Work ethic, Attitude. Skill can be taught and so can game play, The other 3 cant. A good culture allows each player to want to work hard for one another which then produces great attitudes on and off the court. With these things inline being better than the other teams will come naturally!!!!"
