Welcome to southcoastblaze

Michele Harvey

Founding member

I have had a dream for the South Coast region to have a team in Netball NSW Premier League since the inception of Premier League in 2016. Illawarra District Netball Association alone had lost far too many talented players to Sydney based Associations over the years and since Premier League began, it became worse. I made some enquiries with the Illawarra Academy of Sport and local business people and reached out to Illawarra, Kiama and Shoalhaven Netball Associations and the rest is history.

South Coast Blaze has captured the very spirit of the South Coast region and is providing a wonderful opportunity to South Coast athletes and I am super proud to have played my part in making that dream come to fruition with the birth of South Coast Blaze 2020.

Fun Facts

Your favourite sporting hero and why
I have a multitude of sporting heroes. Kerryn McCann was definitely a number one. She was a personal friend and we (my family) were heavily involved with her progress from the time she was ten year old.

Something on your bucket list
I would love to return to Paris and visit the neighbourhood of St Michel and Pigalle.
