Wildcats join growing list of Clubs appointing new head coach for season 2011
Feb 16, 2011
The Hamilton Widlcats are very excited to have an Australian non-playing full-time Head Coach in Hamilton for the 2011 season. Matt Lowry has signed-on to coach the 'Cats for the immediate future, and it marks the first time in 13 seasons that the Club has had a non-playing Coach. Matt comes off the plane coming off a Grand Final win last season, coaching his son's under 18 side in Oz (with both twin boys joining him in the great white north). Hamilton have had some great playing coaches over the years, with guys like Justin Johns, Brett Hill, Soupy, Bulldog & Aiken taking the reigns, but having that authoritative voice both on and off the ground will be a huge key for the 'Catters moving forward. Now our best players can just focus on playing, rather than having to play their game and make coaching decisions on the fly.
After watching a few games late last season Coach Lowry is "excited" at the direction in which he can take the club, already pushing the boys through numerous training sessions this year aswell as implementing hot yoga sessions to help condition the boys and keep them injury free in 2011.
